VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) - The Vancouver Canucks hope to end their four-game homestand on a winning note Sunday when they host the Minnesota Wild.

One of the NHL's most dominant home clubs this season, the Canucks have dropped two straight here after opening their homestand with a 7-4 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.

Vancouver has struggled offensively since then, managing a total of just three goals in its losses to St. Louis and Anaheim.

Captain Markus Naslund scored the lone goal in Vancouver's 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Friday.

The Canucks came up empty on all five of their power plays in the contest, including a 5-on-3 advantage in the third period.

Vancouver hopes to straighten out its problems on the power play Sunday when it hosts a Minnesota squad fresh off a convincing 6-3 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard had two goals and two assists for the Wild, who improved to 9-4-0 over their last 13 games.
