Canucks look to build on late Game 4 comeback @NHLdotcom

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -The Vancouver Canucks know exactly how the Los Angeles Kings feel after blowing a late lead and a great opportunity.

Vancouver was within 3 minutes of taking a 3-1 series lead against Chicago in the second round of last year's playoffs, but after a late goal they lost Game 4 in overtime. They also lost their momentum, their composure, and two games later, the series.

Now, after overcoming a third-period deficit to win Game 4 in Los Angeles on Wednesday and tie this year's best-of-seven series 2-2, the Canucks go into Game 5 on Friday hoping the Kings feel the same way they did about being so close.

"It's still tough looking back," Vancouver's Henrik Sedin said. "We were 2-2 last year too, but they had all the momentum."
