Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin and his brother Daniel Sedin were flying in Monday night’s crucial tilt against the Los Angeles Kings.
Dominant throughout the contest, the twins combined on a milestone third period tally that tied the game. The goal was Daniel’s – a hard, accurate slapshot that resulted from several give-and-go passes between him and his brother – and the assist was the 700th of Henrik’s career.
Here’s the goal. It’s an appropriate milestone goal for the twins because there are two or three passes here that almost no one else in the game today, let alone in history, would even consider making. That’s just how the twins roll:
Classic Sedinery, as Pass it to Bulis would have it.
For becoming just the 51 player in NHL history to record 700 career regular season assists Henrik was treated to a rousing standing ovation from the Rogers Arena faithful. What a play. What a career.
