Inconsistent Canucks host Coyotes

Dec 12, 2006 - 4:35 PM Phoenix (11-17-1) at Vancouver (14-15-1) 10:00 pm EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks have been inconsistent all season, and lately has not been any different.

The Canucks have alternated wins and losses in their last six games. Vancouver dropped its last game, 5-3, to the Calgary Flames on Saturday, as the Canucks became Calgary's ninth straight victim at home.

Daniel Sedin, Jan Bulis and Kevin Bieksa scored for Canucks, who went 2-for-5 on the power play.

Goaltender Roberto Luongo again was shaky in allowing four goals on 24 shots. He was replaced by Dany Sabourin, who stopped all 13 shots faced.

The Coyotes lost for only the second time in their last seven games when they dropped a 4-0 decision to the San Jose Sharks on Monday.

Phoenix started slowly, getting outshot, 22-6, in the first period and had trouble mounting an attack on Vesa Toskala, who recorded his seventh career shutout. Phoenix went 0-for-5 on the power play.
