VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The Vancouver Canucks playoff records are falling as the team is just one win away from advancing to the Stanley Cup Final for just the third time in the club’s history.
Henrik Sedin could re-write the Vancouver playoff record book all by himself. He leads all players with 19 points and has a league leading 17 assists.
Henrik also set the franchise record for assists in a period (3), most assists in a game (4), most assists in a playoff series (9) and most assists in a playoff year (17). That matches Trevor Linden, Geoff Courtnall, Pavel Bure and Russ Courtnall for most points in a game (4).
Sedin also has 10 points in four games against San Jose, that’s just two back of the club record for points in a series.
Henrik upped his career playoff total to 59 points (19-40-59) to pass Cliff Ronning for 4th all-time in franchise playoff scoring, two back of Courtnall for third place.
Daniel is also tied for second among goal scorers with eight. Tampa Bay’s Sean Bergenheim leads the way with nine goals.
Roberto Loungo leads all goalies in the post season with two shutouts and 11 wins.
Vancouver leads San Jose 3-1 in the Western Conference Final with Game 5 at Rogers Arena Tuesday night.
