Canucks try to keep rolling
They've won three in a row to climb back on top of the overall NHL standings. Now the Vancouver Canucks will try to build on that lead.

The Canucks, 4-1 winners at Dallas on Tuesday, will try for their fourth win in a row when they visit Phoenix at 9:30 p.m. ET in one of six games on Wednesday's NHL schedule. The win against the Stars gives the Canucks 73 points, two more than Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia.

The action starts with a pair of games at 7 p.m. ET. Detroit resumes play after the All-Star break with a visit to Ottawa, where the Senators come home after a 2-1 loss at New Jersey on Tuesday. That game can be seen in Canada on TSN. Pittsburgh, a 4-3 shootout winner against the Rangers in New York on Tuesday, returns home to host the New York Islanders in a game that can be seen in the United States on Versus. The Isles won 4-1 at Atlanta on Tuesday.
The Penguins beat the Isles 1-0 last Tuesday in their final game before the break.

At 7:30, Florida tries to bounce back from a 4-3 shootout loss at Toronto on Tuesday when it visits Montreal. The Canadiens won a shootout on Tuesday, beating the Capitals 4-3 in Washington. RDS will air the game in Canada.

Also at 9:30, Los Angeles moves on from a 1-0 shootout loss at Minnesota on Tuesday to play the Oilers in Edmonton. At 10 p.m. ET, Anaheim plays its first game after the break when it hosts San Jose, which is beginning a seven-game road trip.
Quote of the Day

He's a strong kid. He's a competitive kid, and certainly not afraid to go into the corners. He's got the skating ability to escape and help us execute in certain situations, but he's got that competitive nature that's a huge part of it too, especially against a team like this.
