Daniel Sedin will have a chance at history when the Vancouver Canucks play the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (2 p.m. ET; SN, MSG, NHL.TV).

The forward, who has 998 points (375 goals, 623 points) in 17 seasons with Vancouver, can join his twin brother, Henrik Sedin, as the only other player to score 1,000 points playing for the Canucks.

But don't expect a big celebration from Daniel when it he gets two more points.

"When [the record] happens, it happens," the 37-year-old, who had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Friday, said. "I think this year is obviously a little different with my role on the team so it can happen next game or happen in six games but we'll take it when it happens."

His teammates likely won't be as subdued.

"I'll be pretty pumped and celebrating hard when he gets it," forward Jake Virtanen said. "Both Sedins are legends and people don't give them the credit they deserve but they've played a lot of tough games. When together, they're almost unstoppable with how they pass to each other; it's pretty special to watch."

In addition to Henrik Sedin, five active players have reached 1,000 points: Jaromir Jagr of the Calgary Flames, Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks, Patrick Marleau of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
