It took Ryan Kesler 12 less games to do it, but he and Henrik Sedin found the score sheet for the first time on the same night against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.
Kesler scored in just his second game back from wrist and shoulder injuries, while the Vancouver Canucks captain registered his first goal in his 14th game.
Less than five minutes into the first period, Kesler, 28, was the beneficiary of a tag-team effort from the Sedin twins. Henrik sent a feed to Daniel, who was waiting in the slot. The latter found a streaking Kesler with a nifty backhand feed, who deposited a one-timer past the outstretched blocking arm of Jake Allen.
It was Henrik Sedin's turn later in the frame.
With just under a minute to play, Sedin worked a give-and-go with Alex Burrows and swept in his first of the year, ending the snakebitten forward's scoreless streak.
With Kesler back, where do the Canucks rank in the NHL in terms of depth down the middle? Let us know in the comments section below.
