NHL: 3 things to know for Friday night

The Vancouver Canucks will look to put consecutive victories together for the first time this month when they host the Boston Bruins at Rogers Arena Friday night.  

Here are three things to know:

Canucks coming off high

The Canucks, who are 3-3-0 in February, pulled out a 5-4 overtime in Chicago on Wednesday. Eddie Lack stopped 37 shots against the Blackhawks, but the Canucks may turn to Ryan Miller against Boston.

Miller went 26-9-7 with a 2.56 GAA against the Bruins while with Buffalo, tied for his second-most wins against any opponent.

The Canucks have won two of three games since losing the 2011 Stanley Cup final to their East rivals.

The Bruins (28-19-7) are coming off back-to-back defeats as they begin a gruelling five-game road trip.

Sedins shine in face of remarks

Remarks made by Stars forwards Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin didn’t seem to bother Daniel and Henrik Sedin, who shined against the Blackhakws. Daniel Sedin scored two goals, including the overtime winner, while Henrik Sedin assisted on both his brother’s goals.

On Wednesday, Benn apologized to the Canucks’ twins for comments he made to a Dallas radio station Monday. When the conversation moved to the Sedins rooming together Benn replied, “who knows what else they do together too.”

Hawks going in wrong direction at home

The Blackhawks (33-18-4) trie to avoid a third straight home loss as they welcome the New Jersey Devils. Chicago has lost four of six games, including the first two beyond regulation on a season-high eight-game homestand.

The Devils, however, may not be the team to extend Chicago’s misery at the United Center.

New Jersey (21-24-9) is averaging 19.8 shots in six road games since New Year's Eve, and are just 4-10-2 in last 16 games on the road.
