Telling Sedins apart difficult

Telling the Sedins apart is even hard for the Canucks:

- Coach Alain Vigneault has praised Daniel thinking it's Henrik and ripped Henrik thinking it was Daniel.

- The Canucks picked up at least one penalty for too many men this year when the incoming shift lost track of which twin was coming off the ice.

- Waved out of a faceoff circle, Daniel will sometimes skate around his brother and come back into the dot without the linesman noticing.

- One will grow a goatee beard and moustache to make things easier for a few days, then shave it while the other adopts the same routine. But in general, Henrik is getting easier to spot as his hair recedes faster, while Daniel's body is thinner.

- Sitting on the bench, Daniel's stick blade is always pointed up, while Henrik's is down.
