Super Structure: Burrows runs interference as Sedin twins work power-play magic

The Vancouver Canucks made the trip out to Nashville on Thursday evening having failed to score in three consecutive contests.

By the time Bo Horvat found the back of the net early in the first period, the team's goalless drought reached 234 minutes and 52 seconds - the longest such streak in club history and the fourth-longest in NHL history.

Once the dam broke, the Canucks quickly developed a taste for scoring the puck, and were right back on the hunt for a goal when Shea Weber earned a tripping penalty later in the period.

On the ensuing power play, the puck worked its way to Henrik Sedin in his office behind the net. That's when the fun started, as Alex Burrows and Daniel Sedin made their way toward the blue ice.

By the time Henrik came out from behind the net, Burrows (14) had established position between Predators defenseman Roman Josi (59) and Daniel (22), who readied himself to receive the puck.

Here's a look at the situation in front of Pekka Rinne as Burrows blocked Josi from the spot Daniel fired his one-timer:

Burrows' positioning rendered Josi unable to make a play on the puck, freeing Henrik and Daniel for an easy pass-and-shoot for the power-play tally, as Daniel's one-timer bulged the twine beyond Rinne's right shoulder.

The goal was Daniel's 27th of the season. With the assist, Henrik passed Maurice "Rocket" Richard for 88th on the all-time points list (966).
