The Canucks have scored only eight goals in the first six games of the Stanley Cup finals and lost Game 6 by a 5-2 final on Monday night, but Daniel Sedin remains confident about his club's chances heading into Game 7 on Wednesday.
"We're going to win Game 7," Sedin told the Vancouver Sun following the loss on Monday.
Sedin scored 104 points in the regular season -- tops in the NHL -- but has struggled in this series, recording just four points in six games.
"It's [reason for struggles] pretty easy because Tim Thomas has been outstanding," said Sedin. "Still, we're 3-3 and we won all three games at home and we have the fourth game at home. So we have the seventh game at home and we'll take that. We are confident."

Former Mets star Lenny Dykstra, who has tried to pass himself off as a financial guru but has run into numerous problems over the past decade, pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to embezzling money from a bankruptcy estate. Represented by a federal public defender, Dykstra was asked if he understood the charges and he responded: "I don't understand it, but I understand them." Dykstra has been in jail since being arrested last month on charges of grand theft auto and drug possession.

The singular turning point of the series has also turned into a rally cry for the Bruins, as Michael Ryder acknowledged after scoring a goal in Boston's 5-2 win over Vancouver in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night at TD Garden.
With the crowd already in a frenzy following two quick goals to start the game, the video board at the Garden showed Nathan Horton in the zamboni area waving a Bruins black and gold hanky. Horton was shown live for the first time since being knocked to the ice with a severe concussion exactly one week ago on hit by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome in Game 3. He has been ruled out of the playoffs.
"Horty's a big part of this team and he's one of the reasons we're where we are," Ryder said. "He's a great guy and it's good to see him a lot better and we know he's excited and he wants us to win. We have to make sure we do everything we can to pull it off for him."
Two and a half...
Despite giving up three goals on the first eight shots he saw in eight minutes, Roberto Luongo said he wasn't overly nervous about playing a road playoff game in his personal playoff house of horrors.
"Honestly, I had a good feeling all day," Luongo said. "It was not extra nerves or anything like that. I was excited to play, I mean I had a chance to win the Cup so nerves is part of playing in the playoffs. You have nerves every game.
"I've had some success on the road all year. Before the series even started, I said I enjoyed playing in this building. I'm not going to make any excuses. It just didn't happen for me, obviously, all three games. I'm just going to move on right now and we have one game at home to win the Stanley Cup. We've had some success there as a team and that's what we're looking forward to right now."
Luongo was lit up badly in the three Cup games in Boston, allowing 16 of the 17 goals...
Speaking after his team's 5-2 Game 6 loss to the Bruins at TD Garden Monday night, Canucks coach Alain Vigneault confirmed that Roberto Luongo would be his starting goalie for Game 7 of the NHL finals Wednesday night in Vancouver.
"I haven't talked to him. He he knows he's going back in next game," Vigneault said. "He's going to be real good."
Vigneault pulled Luongo 7:55 into the first period after the Canucks goalie allowed three goals on eight shots. Backup netminder Cory Schneider came on and allowed two goals, making 30 saves.
"I don't have to say anything to him. He's a professional," Vigneault said when asked what kind of message he might pass along to Luongo. "His preparation is beyond reproach and he's going to be ready for Game 7."
Asked why he pulled Luongo in favor of Schneider so early in the game, the Vancouver coach said, "I just felt that it was the thing to do at the time....
