Canucks look to take advantage of slumping Stars

Dallas (16-16-5) at Vancouver (21-15-6) 10:00 p.m. EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks
may be coming off a loss, but at least they're comfortably over
.500.

The Canucks will be looking to bounce back from a shootout loss
when they host the Dallas Stars on Sunday.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin combined for three goals on Friday but
Daniel was stopped on the final shootout chance as Vancouver
fell at Atlanta, 4-3. With Roberto Luongo still out with a
strained groin, Jason LaBarbera got the start against the
Thrashers and made 34 saves.

The Sedin brothers form one of the most dynamic offensive duos
in the league. Daniel leads the team with 41 points - 19 goals
- while Henrik ranks second at 37 points - seven goals.

The Stars have yet to put more than two wins in a row this
season and have slumped to the third-worst record in the Western
Conference after reaching the playoffs in every season since
2002-03.

Dallas dropped a 4-1 decision at Edmonton on Saturday as
netminder Marty Turco allowed all four goals on 19 shots. Turco
has a goals-against average of 3.19 this season - the highest
mark of his career.
