Theyll shoot for another positive result when they host the Minnesota Wild in tonights clash at Rogers Arena. The Canucks went into the NHLs Olympic break mired in an 0-7-0 slump, but halted that slide with Wednesdays 1-0 win over the visiting St. Louis Blues. It had been Vancouvers longest stretch of regulation losses since the 1998-99 season, but goaltender Eddie Lack helped snap the skid with a 20-save shutout performance. "Lack was outstanding," Vancouver head coach John Tortorella said of his rookie goaltender. "Key saves at key times. He calms this team down." Jannik Hansen provided the offense needed for Vancouvers recent win, scoring the games only goal late in the third period. After outshooting St. Louis 28-17 over the first 40 minutes, Vancouver finally broke the scoreless deadlock late in the third when Tom Sestito picked up the puck along the right midboards in his own zone and backhanded a beautiful outlet pass to Hansen. Hansen corralled the disc near the red line and split two defenders near the blue line before skating into the inner half of the right circle and rifling a wrister under the right arm of Jaroslav Halak to make it 1-0 at the 11:13 mark. The Canucks played Wednesdays game without forward Ryan Kesler, who is dealing with a bruised right hand. The American Olympian has been the subject of trade rumours ahead of next weeks deadline and returns to the lineup for tonights tilt. Despite the win on Wednesday, Vancouver was knocked out of a playoff position while idle on Thursday as Dallas moved into the eighth spot in the West with a win over Carolina. The Canucks are tied with Phoenix and one point back of the Stars. Lack will get another start tonight while Roberto Luongo sits this one out.

Tonights test marks the final test for Vancouver before hosting Ottawa in Sundays outdoor battle at BC Place. The Wild posted a third straight win when they came back from the break to post Thursdays 3-0 victory in Edmonton. Darcy Kuemper made 21 saves for his second shutout of the season to anchor the win. Mikael Granlund, Stephane Veilleux and Dany Heatley scored for the Wild, who will aim for their first four-game winning streak since Jan. 2-9. "I thought that our guys had a real good focus on defending tonight and doing it the right way," Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo said. Kuemper is expected to get the start again tonight. Niklas Backstrom is dealing with an abdominal problem at the moment, but he was able to dress as the backup on Thursday. The Wild, who are seventh in the West and six points ahead of the Canucks, are completing a two-game road trip tonight. Minnesota is 11-14-5 as the away team this season.

While Chelsea stayed two points behind leader Arsenal courtesy of Etoos hat trick, seventh-place United slipped 14 points from the summit this weekend. And the gap from the Champions League places is growing as well, with Liverpool six points ahead in fourth. Tottenham is level on points with Liverpool, but behind on goal difference after beating Swansea 3-1 in Sundays other game. Changing managers has revitalized Tottenham, with Tim Sherwood collecting 16 out of 18 points since replacing Andre Villas-Boas, while David Moyes has now has overseen seven league losses this season after succeeding Alex Ferguson -- two more than last years title-winning campaign. "Its a difficult task, but (its about) perseverance and keeping doing whats right," Moyes said. "I thought we did a lot of good things today. We have players to come back, and this is a project I know that Im going to improve as it goes along. "I was hoping to win more and be competing a bit more than weve been, but thatll come." Having made a strong start, United was stunned by Chelsea going ahead against the run of play in the 17th minute. Etoo cut in from the right, swept past Phil Jones and unleashed a shot that took a heavy deflection off Michael Carricks boot before looping over goalkeeper David de Gea into the net. "They started the match better than us and they were a bit unlucky that we scored in that moment," Mourinho said. "When you are better than the opponent, you have to go and try to kill the game." United squandered a chance to level in the 38th. Adnan Januzajs cross reached Danny Welbeck in a central position but the striker couldnt produce a clean shot. Oscar then tried to double the lead with a bicycle kick that flew over from right in front of goal, and instead Chelseas second came from the boot of Etoo again. Welbeck only half cleared, Ramires seized possession and fed the ball to Hazard on the right flank. The winger then squared to the unmarked Etoo to sweep a shot into the net as halftime loomed. Uniited had little time to settle after the break before its defence was breached again and Etoo celebrated his first treble in English football. Robinson Zapata Jersey. Cahill headed in from Willians corner and De Gea only briefly blocked the ball before it went back out for Etoo, who got ahead of Antonio Valencia to score. United pulled one back when Jones scuffed shot was stabbed into the net by Javier Hernandez. But there was no comeback and it got worse in stoppage time when United captain Nemanja Vidic was sent off for lunging at Eden Hazard, and he now faces a three-game ban. While Moyes trudged off despondently, Mourinho was left to celebrate a 100th Premier League win out of 142 games across his two Chelsea reigns while still demanding more. "We have to improve," Mourinho said. "I want better. The first 20 minutes were not good. "I want the game to be in our control since the beginning and it was not." Tottenham was in control at Swansea and swept to a fifth win in six league games as Adebyor -- brought in from the cold under Sherwood -- took his tally to six goal in seven games under the new manager. The striker headed in his first in south Wales from Christian Eriksens cross in the 35th. Tottenham was gifted a second eight minutes into the second half when Kyle Walkers cross was steered into his own goal by Chico Flores. Adebayor was on target again in the 71st from close range after Danny Rose did the hard work on the left flank before setting up the striker. And much like United at Stamford Bridge, Swansea reducing the deficit to 3-1 couldnt spark a comeback. Wilfried Bony pulled one back in the 78th when he turned Roland Lamahs cross past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. "We know there are going to be tougher tests ahead, but its been a good start for me," Sherwood said. "If the season were to end tomorrow I dont think the chairman (Daniel Levy) would be too happy because we are fifth. "The final league position has to meet the expectation of the club otherwise its goodbye. ... The club needs to finish in fourth place, we want to finish in fourth place. Anything other than that will be a disappointment but realistically we should be in amongst it."
