They were better in overtime, but the twin brothers who are the Canucks' offensive engine continued to sputter in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Canucks are now tied 1-1 in this series, but clearly they will need scoring from the Sedins, Daniel and Henrik, who have just won back-to-back NHL scoring championships.

They're not getting it.

Henrik now has just one assist in six games since Game 3 of the Chicago series.

Daniel is a little better but has one goal in five games since Game 4 of the first round.

Is one injured? Both? Henrik claims not. "No, we feel great, 100 per cent," the Canucks captain said, but admitted the expectation clearly is for he and his twin brother to be difference-makers in a series that shapes up as being very stingy for goals.

"There's a few (playoff) games where we haven't played good enough," said Henrik, who finished a poor 36 per cent on faceoffs. "There was a couple against Chicago. Tonight we didn't play our best for the first part of the game. The

last part I thought we created a lot of chances. Goalscoring in the playoffs is going to be like that for a lot of guys, so you've got to bear down and help the team any way you can. Right now that's playing good defensively. We had a lot of chances to put the puck in the net, but we know when you get the chance you've got to bear down."

Head coach Alain Vigneault attempted to change chemistry in the final two games of the Chicago series by moving regular winger Alex Burrows off the Sedins' line and replacing him with Mikael Sameulsson. The result has been four subsequent goals for Burrows, but no joy for Danny and Hank.

In Game 2 against the Preds, Vigneault started shuffling again, this time moving Samuelsson back to the third line and trying both Jannik Hansen and Chris Higgins on the right side. Samuelsson, though, was back with them for the OT periods.
