It was Henrik Sedin's night, but clearly no one told the Dallas Stars.

The Stars rallied from a 3-1 second deficit to nip the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 Friday night in one of the most exciting games at Rogers Arena in recent memory.

Dallas opened the scoring late in the first period before Daniel Sedin tied it up 3:21 into the second; his fourth goal of the season was assisted by Henrik Sedin moving him into a tie with Markus Naslund as the Canucks all-time leading scorer.

Chris Higgins made is a 2-1 game less than a minute later and Alex Burrows converted a perfect Henrik Sedin pass just over five minutes later to put Vancouver up 3-1 and give Henrik the record all to himself. It hasn't been that loud in Rogers Arena since the Stanley Cup Final and maybe never that rowdy for a single player.

Three back-to-back-to-back fights ended the second, but not before the Stars cut into the Canucks lead making it 3-2. In the third Vancouver had no answer for Dallas as Cory Schneider allowed two goals on seven shots ending the Canucks winning streak at six games.
