Vancouver (11-5-2) at San Jose (8-7-2), 10:30 pm EST
SAN JOSE, California (Ticker) -- On their way to first place
in the Northwest Division, the Vancouver Canucks have been solid
at home and shaky on the road.
The Canucks try to snap a four-game road losing skid when they
open a three-game trip Wednesday against the San Jose Sharks.
The streak features two losses in three days at Colorado in late
October and a pair of one-goal defeats at Calgary, which
lowered the Canucks' road record to 3-4-2 this season.
Todd Bertuzzi registered his fourth career hat trick and Anson
Carter scored his fourth goal of the season to lead the Canucks
to a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.
San Jose's season has been streaky of late as its three-game
skid came after five straight wins, which followed a four-game
losing drought. The Sharks have scored just six times in their
last four contests.
