Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Vancouver Canucks returned home on their first winning streak in over a month.
The Canucks try to keep heading in the right direction on Friday night when they begin their homestand against the Phoenix Coyotes.
Vancouver went 3-1-0 on a four-game road trip, the lone loss of the swing coming in John Tortorella's return to New York on Nov. 30. The Canucks followed up with wins over Carolina and Nashville to improve to 10-5-2 on the road this season.

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Apologies to everyone who thought their team had a chance to sign Henrik Lundqvist away from the New York Rangers this summer.
In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone who's been watching Lundqvist man the crease for the Blueshirts over the past several seasons, the Rangers locked up their star goaltender months before he could ever hit the open market.
Lundqvist ended speculation about his desire to stay in New York on Wednesday, agreeing to a seven-year deal worth a reported $59.5 million.
