08:22 PM ET 05.05 | The Vancouver Canucks are traveling to San Jose tonight to try and get a game back against the Sharks, but it's going to be a tough task to accomplish. The reason for this stems directly from the struggles by the Sedin brothers, Henrik and Daniel. Despite being two of the best players in the game today, and the best players on Vancouver's roster, the brothers have struggled to be productive for the Canucks and it's looking like Vancouver's chances hinge on whether or not they can get it together in time. Vancouver needs goals from the Sedin brothers but they're getting nothing but assists at the moment and even those aren't as frequent as fans would like. Through two games, Daniel and Henrik Sedin have combined for 10 shots on goal, two assists and zero goals, and because of that, the Canucks are down 2-0 to the Sharks. The absence of production from the Sedin brothers was painfully apparent in the Cancucks' Game 2 loss in overtime to the Sharks. Situations like that are ones where the Canucks need their best players to step up and the Sedin brothers really let them down. The scoring chances are there, and Antti Niemi is a top-notch netminder, but the Sedins are supposed to be heading up one of the most powerful lines in the Western Conference and that line is crumbling with their lack of production.
