COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- If the Vancouver Canucks want to start winning on the road, they are going to have to start scoring some goals.

The Canucks look to snap a five-game road losing streak when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.

Vancouver outshot the Boston Bruins, 39-19, on Thursday but dropped a 2-0 decision. Dany Sabourin made 17 saves for the Canucks, who have scored just six goals in their last five road losses.

Columbus, 1-2-1 in its last four, will try to rebound from a 5-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday in the second game of a home-and-home series.

The Blue Jackets actually outshot Detroit, 27-25, but were blanked in six power-play opportunities.

Sergei Fedorov has been hot for the Blue Jackets despite not collecting any points in Detroit. In his last four games, the center has three goals and three assists.
