Sedin Twins Ready to Lead Canucks in NHL Playoffs

One year after Henrik Sedin won the Art Ross Trophy for the most points scored by an NHL player as well as the Hart Memorial Trophy for being the player voted most valuable to his team, brother Daniel Sedin has tried to do the same.

Daniel has already captured the Art Ross Trophy, marking the first time in NHL league history that two brothers have won the Art Ross in consecutive years, and although individual awards have not been a focus for the Sedin brothers, you can bet Daniel would like to match his brother with a Hart Trophy of his own.

Both Henrik and Daniel appreciate the individual trophies, but they know that the trophy that matters the most is not won in April, but instead June. With the pressure of an entire city (and if they advance to the Conference Finals, a country) on their shoulders, it will need to be Henrik and Daniel that lead the way for the Vancouver Canucks to live up to their expectations as Stanley Cup contenders.

Vancouver is heavily favored in their first round series with Chicago, a team that has eliminated Vancouver from the Stanley Cup Playoffs each of the last two years. The individual matchups within this series are very intriguing.

Key to the Series:

Daniel & Henrik Sedin vs. Dave Bolland:

The agitating Hawks center is currently sidelined with a concussion, but it is believed that he has made the trip with his team to Vancouver and should make an appearance "early in the series" as Chicago coach Joel Quenneville pointed out to the media on Monday. Bolland has been able to derail, distract, and negate the Sedin brothers the past two years in the Playoffs, for the Canucks to win this series, they will need Henrik & Daniel Sedin to push through Bolland's aggressive and in your face play to lead this Canucks offensive attack.

If Daniel and Henrik Sedin can continue to produce offensively and ignore Dave Bolland, both at even strength and on the PowerPlay, look for the Canucks to be well on their way to finally getting past the Chicago Blackhawks.
