Daniel and Henrik Sedin became efficient twin killers of the Edmonton Oilers last night.

The brothers combined for nine points while carrying the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 victory.

But don't expect any high-fives or back slapping from the near identical pair.

Although it was a career night for Daniel with five points, he was as humble as possible.

'AN EASY GAME'

"When the puck goes your way, it's an easy game," said Daniel.

"(The) first goal was unbelievably lucky and then it kept going."

By the end of the night, Daniel had his second career hat trick and Henrik had four assists.

"We had a tough stretch around late January," said Henrik.

"We were able to win some games even when we didn't score, and lately we have been able to get back scoring."

LOTS OF POINTS

It has happened to the tune of 17 points between the brothers in the last five games.

Henrik provided the highlight of the night with a behind-the-back pass to Daniel to make it a 4-2 game at 8:18 of the third period.

"I was just lucky to get the puck on his stick," said Henrik.

FINISH LINES: Vancouver head coach Alain Vigneault might have delivered the line of the night when asked for an update on Lukas Krajicek, who was run over by Zach Stortini in the first period.

"Bad fish," cracked Vigneault.

Krajicek didn't return, but there were no complaints about the hit from the Canucks.

"We can sit and complain about body checks, but it's part of the game," said Matt Cooke.

"Unfortunately Lukas didn't see it coming. Obviously we need to talk more to prevent that from happening."
