Sedins pass Sutters

<<From Elias: Daniel Sedin scored the game-winning goal in the Canucks' series-clinching win in Nashville, with an assist by his brother Henrik. The Sedin twins have played in all 78 of the Canucks' playoff games since they joined the team nearly 11 years ago. Monday's game gave the Sedins sole possession of the NHL record for most playoff games played as teammates by a pair of brothers, breaking a tie with Brent and Duane Sutter, who played 77 such games.>>
 
The Isles actually played 87 palyoff games during the six year period that Brent and Duane played for them; however, Brent missed one game in 1984 with a knee injury and missed nine games in 1987 with a groin injury.
