NHL Playoffs 2011: Sedin Twins Power Canucks over Sharks 4-2, Take 3-1 Lead

In a series dominated by special teams play, the emphasis for both teams coming into Game 4 was to stay out of the penalty box. Unfortunately for the San Jose Sharks, Antti Niemi could not save them in the second period as San Jose conceded three consecutive five-on-three Canuck goals.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin continued their torrid pace against the Sharks, leading the Canucks with a combined seven points. Henrik Sedin set a franchise record with four assists in Game 4, but the Sharks honestly had no answer for the either of the Sedin twins.

San Jose’s power-play sputtered, going 0-5 in their first five man advantages, and were outplayed at home after a rebound victory in Game 3.

Vancouver now has a chance to advance to their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance since 1994 at home in Game 5 on Tuesday.
