Daniel Alfredsson can tie an 86-year-old NHL record tonight at Scotiabank Place.

The Senators captain has scored four straight game-winning goals, and could be the first NHL player to have five in a row since Montreal's Newsy Lalonde of Cornwall accomplished it in February 1921.

Still, it will be a tall task for Alfredsson and the Senators, who will host the hot Vancouver Canucks, winners of nine of their last 10 games.

"I'm sure going to try," said Alfredsson, who has 14 points in the last five games. "It's just something that is fun. The media has been having some fun with it and so am I. You just want to keep having success.

"Stats are sometimes just a bit lucky. (Goals) feel a lot better when they break a tie. In the game against New York (Rangers), I scored the fifth goal to make it 5-0 and then they came back with four goals. It turned out to be the winner."
