    Daniel Sedin teamed up with his twin brother, Henrik, to take over the NHL scoring lead.

    Vancouver teammate Raffi Torres ended a long slump by trying not to imitate him.

    Sedin scored twice and added an assist, and Torres ended a 23-game goal drought with a pair of goals to lead the Canucks to a 5-2 win over the slumping Dallas Stars on Saturday night.

    Torres, who hadn't scored since New Year's Eve, credited a simplified approach for busting his slump, which isn't easy when you watch the Sedins play.

    "Just squeezing the stick a little too tight, but since the [All-Star] break, it's been focus on trying to get pucks on net, straight lines and don't make that extra play," he said. "It's tough when you see the twins and what they do and they make it look so easy. Sometimes you think you got that in your bag, but I've got to have a little reality check and just get back to basics."
