The Vancouver Canucks played a phenomenal game against the Dallas Stars, winning with a lopsided 5-2 score. The unsung hero of this game was Christopher Tanev, putting up 19:57 minutes and spurring Henrik Sedin's beautiful goal assisted by Daniel Sedin and Alex Burrows. Tanev, though he has yet to score his first NHL goal, is playing incredibly solidly for the Canucks throughout the current d-men injuries. Another player who's spectacular play is flying under the radar is Mason Raymond. Raymond had 2 shots on goal, both definite chances for a goal. Raymond, though he hasn't been putting up points, he has been creating excellent plays and opportunities and has been reliable. Daniel Sedin's two spectacular goals and one fantastic assist put him at the top of the points charts for the NHL, Torres' goal was his first since New Year's Eve, and Henrik's goal and two assists place him in third place in the points standings. Tonight the Canucks played amazingly, confirming, yet again, that they belong at the top of the standings.
