Here's some good news as the Vancouver Canucks stagger to the finish line.

With an assist on brother Daniel Sedin's first-period goal Thursday, Henrik Sedin passed Montreal Canadiens legend Maurice "Rocket" Richard for 88th on the NHL's all-time scoring list.

Henrik has 966 points in 1,157 games. Richard finished with 965 points in 978 games.

The Canucks lost again Thursday, blowing a 2-0 lead to the Nashville Predators and falling in a shootout. On the bright side, they scored - which they hadn't done in the three previous games - and picked up a point in the standings.

"It's tough to lose, but it was one of the best games we've played in a while," Henrik said.
