The Canucks have gotten back to skating over opponents. The defending Western Conference champions are better goaltending by Roberto Luongo and more scoring from several key individuals.
They scored four or more goals seven times in a span of nine games before falling 3-1 to the Flames before the Christmas break.
Here are some of the guys making that happen:
After scoring 11 points in 13 November games, Henrik Sedin has scored 16 in 11 games thus far in December.
Winger Alex Burrows scored goals in four consecutive games and added two assists during that span. Of his 13 goals this season, eight have come since Nov. 23.
Winger Mason Raymond made it back from the long-term disability list (fractured vertebrae) to score seven points in his first nine games back.
Defenseman Kevin Bieksa scored just three points in 11 October games and recorded a minus-7 rating. Since then he has 14 points and a plus-12 rating in 24 games.
Defenseman Alexander Edler has seven points in 11 games thus far this month – sustaining the steady pace he has enjoyed all season.
