VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks seek to increase their one-point lead over Minnesota in the Northwest Division when they host the Nashville Predators on Wednesday.

The Canucks have won eight of their last 10 games and trail Anaheim (43-18-12) by four points and the Predators (47-20-7) by six points in the Western Conference race.

Vancouver edged Edmonton, 2-1, on Monday for its third straight victory. Roberto Luongo made 36 saves and is 7-1-1 with just 19 goals allowed in his last nine starts.

Nashville leads Detroit (45-19-9) by just one point in the Central Division and conference race and snapped a two-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over Dallas on Saturday.

Kimmo Timonen scored twice and Jordin Tootoo also scored but received a five-game suspension for punching Dallas defenseman Stephane Robidas in the face.
