Friday's playoff game involving a Canadian team:

Vancouver at San Jose, 9 p.m. ET.

Canucks — Vancouver rides a wave of momentum into San Jose after taking a 2-0 series lead in stunning fashion. The Canucks won the opener 3-2 before routing San Jose 7-3 in Game 2. The Sedins — Daniel and Henrik — continue to give the Sharks fits, with Daniel scoring twice in Wednesday's blowout.
