|Canucks Force Blackhawks Into 2-0 Hole
|VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Daniel Sedin scored his second goal midway through the third period and added an assist to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night and a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.
Jannik Hansen opened the scoring on a nice pass from Sedin, and Alexander Edler scored with 13.1 seconds left in the second period. Roberto Luongo made 22 saves for the Canucks, who travel to Chicago for Game 3 Sunday with a chance to take a stranglehold on the best-of-seven series.
Ben Smith had two goals, Viktor Stalberg also scored and Corey Crawford made 23 saves for the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks.
