Video: Henrik Sedin scores first goal since Dec. 14

Mar 10, 2014, 11:29 PM EDT

Update: Nope, no breathe of fresh air. Instead, the Islanders stormed back for a stunning 7-4 win, making Sedin’s moment seem like a relic in just a period. Read more about that here.

It’s odd – but maybe also oddly fitting – that the Vancouver Canucks have begun to show life since Eddie Lack was beaten on an embarrassing center-ice goal. As of this writing, Lack hasn’t allowed a goal since that point, but that’s not the only promising sign for the Canucks, as Henrik Sedin scored a long-awaited goal on Monday against the New York Islanders:

That’s the 33-year-old’s first goal since Dec. 14 and his first point since Jan. 10.

It’s important for Canucks fans to temper their excitement, as this breakthrough might not be a bigger picture turnaround since they just beat the Calgary Flames and hope to hold on against the Islanders. Still, for a team that’s searching for optimism, this is a breathe of fresh air.

    Quite the drought the Twins found themselves in this year.

    aaaaaaaand they give up 3 goals in under 3 minutes to THE ISLANDERS. Despicable. Fire Gillis, replace him with someone who has an IQ above 90 then fire Torts and do everything possible to bring in Stevens

    What the hell is this article about? Have shown life since McG beat him from the blue line? You understand they lost this game 7-4? I’m happy the Sedin scored but you gave up 7 goals on 15 shots.
