"Ø"Ø ABOUT THE CANUCKS

Vancouver won its third game in four days Friday night in Chicago, rallying from a 2-0 deficit to knock off the Blackhawks 3-2 following an eight-round shootout. Ryan Kesler played the hero in the shootout for the Canucks, now 8-1-1 in their last 10 and 21-11-6 overall.

Former Manitoba Moose netminder Eddie Lack was solid in picking up the win over the Hawks, kicking out 24 shots in 65 minutes. Lack is now 5-2 this season with a .927 save percentage and 1.98 GAA.

Mike Santorelli, who played 10 games for the Jets after being acquired at the trade deadline last year, has been outstanding for the Canucks after signing with his hometown team as an unrestricted free agent. He has eight goals and 18 assists and is a solid plus-14.

The Canucks have the NHL's best penalty-kill unit, having killed off 90.2 per cent. Their power-play is ranked 23rd at 14.9 per cent -- just slightly better now than the 25th-ranked Jets at 14.4.

Friday's win over Chicago means the Canucks have produced a league-leading nine wins when their opponent scored first.

Roberto Luongo ranks 15th all-time in NHL history for most shutouts (65) -- one away from tying Patrick Roy in 14th spot.
