VANCOUVER, Canada--Greetings from Vancouver, where only one of the Sedin twins was on the ice for the Canucks' game-day skate in advance of Wednesday night's first-round playoff opener against the Kings. Coach Alain Vigneault said afterward that Daniel Sedin, who has a concussion, won't play Wednesday. "This is a unique injury and you have to take it day by day," he said. Vigneault also said he would not address reports in the Swedish media that Daniel had experienced headaches after skating on Monday.

Daniel Sedin had a goal and two assists, his twin Henrik added three assists and Andrew Raycroft made 30 saves in the Vancouver Canucks' 4-1 victory over the Ducks on Wednesday night in Vancouver, Canada. Christian Ehrhoff, Alex Burrows and Ryan Kesler also scored to help Vancouver bounce back from a loss to last-place Edmonton on Tuesday night. The win was the Canucks' second in five games and kept them five points ahead of Colorado atop the Northwest Division. Henrik Sedin moved back into the NHL scoring lead with 99 points, one more than Washington's Alex Ovechkin.

VANCOUVER, Canada -- According to Mike Richards, the go-ahead goal he engineered to lead the Kings to a stunning, playoff-opening 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday was the product of lucky breaks. Not so. He was able to set up the decisive goal with 3 minutes 14 seconds left in the third period because of his smarts, experience and calm, qualities the Kings might have wondered he still had while he struggled through a season-long scoring slump. That he was in position to knock down a pass by Canucks defenseman Alex Edler was an accident, Richards said.

This loss gnawed at the Kings, and it should. Because as much as they blamed the referees for allowing mayhem to reign before Daniel Sedin scored the go-ahead goal in a 3-1 Vancouver victory Saturday, they knew they were also at fault for playing below their capabilities. Bodies were flying in the third period of a heated game at Staples Center as the Canucks cycled the puck in the Kings' zone. The puck came to defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, who took a close-range shot at Jonathan Quick.

FROM BOSTON — The crowd at TD Garden on Wednesday loudly voiced the Boston Bruins' innermost hopes, singing "We want the Cup" and chanting the name of Nathan Horton, the forward whose Stanley Cup finals ended Monday because of a concussion he suffered on an illegal hit by Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome. The chants were music to the ears of the Bruins, whose Cup hopes suddenly have new life. "It gave me goose bumps," rookie forward Tyler Seguin said after the Bruins overpowered the Canucks, 4-0, and tied the finals at two games each.

Reporting from Boston After losing the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals at Vancouver, the Boston Bruins returned home looking for a big turnaround. They have been down this path before — they rallied after losing the first two games at home to Montreal in the first round — but the Canucks are deeper and better, and the odds against a rally are daunting. Of the 34 home teams that previously won the first two games of the Cup finals, 32 went on to claim Lord Stanley's trophy.

Unfortunately, for the Ducks, that sterling display by their goaltender, Dan Ellis, came when Anaheim was on the power play in the second period. No one ever said cleanup jobs were pretty. That could be a metaphor for this lost, sinking season in Anaheim. Vancouver defeated the Ducks, 5-2, delighting its large traveling contingent of passionate fans at Honda Center on Thursday night.

If Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows' finger-chomping, both teams' taunting and diving and defenseman Aaron Rome's illegal hit on Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton in Game 3 were not enough to leave a sour taste, then Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo took the animosity to a new level. After the Canucks' 1-0 victory Friday in Vancouver, which put them in position to win the Cup on Monday at TD Garden, Luongo said the Maxim Lapierre goal that eluded Boston netminder Tim Thomas "is an easy save for me, but if you're wandering out and aggressive like he does, that's going to happen.

From Boston — The Stanley Cup finals took a turn toward ugly with a detour through frightening Monday when a vicious hit by Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome sent Boston winger Nathan Horton to the hospital on a stretcher. Banding together in Horton's absence, the Bruins scored four times in the second period and four times in a contentious third period for an 8-1 victory that cut the Canucks' series lead to two games to one. A league spokesman said Mike Murphy, the NHL's senior vice president of hockey operations, is reviewing the hit, which means Rome is likely to face a hearing on Tuesday.

Reporting from Vancouver, Canada — The NHL will not punish Vancouver forward Alex Burrows for allegedly chomping on the finger of Boston center Patrice Bergeron during the Canucks' 1-0 victory over the Bruins on Wednesday in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. Mike Murphy , the league's senior vice president of hockey operations, announced the decision Thursday following a phone interview with Burrows, a productive winger who usually plays alongside high-scoring twins Henrik and Daniel Sedin . "After reviewing the incident, including speaking with the on-ice officials, I can find no conclusive evidence that Alex Burrows intentionally bit the finger of Patrice Bergeron," Murphy said in a statement.
