Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin has tied the franchise record for consecutive games played.The former scoring champion skated in his 534th straight contest Friday night, a 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames. That equals the club record set by veteran forward Brendan Morrison, now with the Flames.Sedin, who hasn't missed a game since before the 2005 NHL lockout, considers himself fortunate to have made history."It's always fun to play games but you have to be lucky," he told reporters after the game. "There are
always freak injuries that happen to guys. I've been very fortunate not
to have the groin injuries or the hip flexors or stuff like that. So
it's been good, knock on wood."Sedin will set the new franchise mark Monday night against the visiting Edmonton Oilers.The 31-year-old is enjoying another solid season, ranked among the league leaders with 40 points (nine goals, 31 assists) in 35 games.
