(SportsNetwork.com) - The Vancouver Canucks hope an upcoming stretch of home games will be enough to get the club into the postseason. That span begins on Saturday night, when the Canucks welcome the Anaheim Ducks to Rogers Arena. The Canucks have been to the postseason in each of the past five seasons, each time going in as champion of the non-defunct Northwest Division. Vancouver has had a tougher go in the new-look Pacific Division, where it sits fifth overall with 79 points. That leaves the Canucks hoping for a wild card spot and it trails the Phoenix Coyotes by five points for the second extra playoff berth. The Coyotes, though, have played one fewer game and play host to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. Vancouver does have a point in four straight games. The Canucks opened a quick two-game road trip with a 5-2 win over the Wild on Wednesday, claiming a third straight victory, but dropped an overtime decision the following night to the Colorado Avalanche. The Avs got the winner 55 seconds into overtime. Matt Duchene circled around the left boards to get clear of defenders before firing a pass to the front of the net where Tyson Barrie tipped it home for the win. Yannick Weber and Zack Kassian scored for the Canucks, while Eddie Lack turned away 25 shots in the loss. "We out-played them in the third, but it was not good enough," said Kassian. "We got the point and had a good road trip." The Canucks played both games on the road without leading scorer Henrik Sedin and his status for this contest is unknown because of a lower-body injury. Sedin leads Vancouver with 36 assists and 46 points. Vancouver fell to 16-19-5 on the road with Thursdays loss and will play five straight and six of its final seven games this season at home. The Canucks are 18-11-6 at Rogers Arena on the campaign. Lack is 0-2-1 with a 3.65 goals against average in his career versus the Ducks, who have won all three of their games versus the Canucks this season. That has pushed Anaheims series winning streak to four straight overall and it also has won seven of the previous 10 meetings. The Ducks have won two straight and four of their last five in Vancouver, a trend they look to continue as they chase the Pacific Division crown. Anaheim is one point back of the first-place San Jose Sharks, who visit Colorado on Saturday afternoon and have played two more games than the Ducks. Anaheim did fail to pull into a tie with San Jose last night as it lost a 4-3 decision to the Edmonton Oilers in overtime. Edmonton had taken two penalties earlier in the overtime, leading to a brief 5-on-3 for Anaheim, but the Ducks took a whistle and the teams wound up skating 3-on-3. With a lot of ice to work with, Edmontons Andrew Ference grabbed the puck in the neutral zone and skated down the middle, winding up for a big blast that ticked off the right post and in with 1:09 left on the clock. Jonas Hiller made just 19 saves in defeat, outdueled by Edmontons Ben Scrivens, who posted 48 stops. "Yeah, he was pretty good tonight," said Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau about Scrivens. "Anytime you get over 50 shots on a goal and you lose, youve got to tip your hat a little bit to the goalie." Nick Bonino, Mathieu Perreault and Patrick Maroon all scored for the Ducks, who had won two straight entering the contest and fell to 4-4-3 in their past 11. Perreault has five goals and three assists over a seven-game point streak. Hiller was making his third straight start and could give way tonight to backup Frederik Andersen. It helps that Andersen has won both of his previous career starts with the Canucks while allowing just two goals on 68 shots. Nomar Garciaparra Red Sox Jersey .

Juan Mata had cancelled out Jason Puncheons opener and, despite United having Chris Smalling sent off for a second bookable offence, Lingard produced a fine volley to clinch the silverware.Here, we round up the talking points from the FA Cup final… Van Gaal delivers silverwareThe manager of Manchester United and the fans of Manchester United can be proud, Louis van Gaal said in his post-match press conference. The Dutchman was quick to point out this is now the fourth major domestic cup hes won across Europe - he has also lifted the equivalent trophies in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands - and Saturdays success was a timely boost after United missed out on Champions League qualification in the Premier League. Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal lifts the FA Cup News Jose Mourinhos agent Jorge Mendes will be flying to Manchester early next week to negotiate a deal for the Portuguese manager to take over as United boss broke just as Van Gaal entered his press conference but he was in no mood to discuss his future, instead eager to celebrate his trophy success.This is Uniteds first FA Cup in 12 years and the first major silverware won since Sir Alex Fergusons departure. After a frustrating campaign which saw the club fall short in the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and Capital One Cup it is also an important moment for under-fire Van Gaal. It may not be enough to save his job but it does provide him with reward for his efforts. Jose Mourinho is set to replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, according to Sky sources Lingard the heroStep off the bench and score a stunning volley in extra time to win the FA Cup at Wembley - Manchester United academy graduate Jesse Lingard lived out his boyhood dream on Saturday. And what a volley it was.The ball fell kindly for the 23-year-old but he met it crisply with his right foot and rifled it into the top corner with just 10 minutes of extra time remaining. Lingard volleyed home for Manchester United in extra time It was a very even game with nothing to choose between the sides. But United got a fantastic goal from Lingard - a goal worthy of any cup final, Tony Cascarino told Sky Sports News HQ.It was Lingards first goal in 18 games for Manchester United. He may have been overlooked by Roy Hodgson for Englands Euro 2016 plans, but expect the Warrington winger to produce more headline-grabbing moments in 2016/17.Rashford injury Marcus Rashford injured his knee in the FA Cup final Less than three months after his Manchester United debut, Marcus Rashford was looking at home on the FA Cup final stage, stretching the Crystal Palace defence with his runs in behind and providing a focal point for the United attack.dddddddddddd However, 68 minutes in, Rashford was floored by a challenge from Wilfried Zaha, caught on the knee by Yohan Cabaye and forced out of the game.The full extent of Rashfords injury remains to be seen - he was able to celebrate with his team-mates after the final whistle - but it would be a blow to both the player and England manager Roy Hodgson should the 18-year-old be sidelined.Rashford had been called into Englands pre-Euro 2016 squad and would have had the chance to try to force his way into Hodgsons tournament plans. Hopefully hes OK, said Cascarino. He did very well before he got injured, made some great flicks and produced some great play from someone so young.De Gea shows his importance David de Gea dives at the feet of Wilfried Zaha Lingard may take the headlines but David de Gea once again underlined his importance to Manchester United with an impressive cup final display. The Spaniard was forced into five saves, denying Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie by tipping the ball around the woodwork and diving at the feet of Wilfried Zaha deep into extra-time.De Gea had little chance with Puncheons powerfully hit goal from close range and Cascarino says he was one of the keys to Uniteds victory. If you are going to win things you need a top goalkeeper - and hes certainly that, said the former striker. He made two or three vital saves.Crowned Manchester Uniteds Player of the Year for a record third successive season this month, De Gea was on the brink of joining Real Madrid last summer before signing a new four-year deal. Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague expects the La Liga giants to make another move for the shot-stopper this summer. United, though, would rue losing such a major asset to their team. Decisions against Palace Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew speaks with FA Cup final referee Mark Clattenburg For Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew it was a third FA Cup final defeat. The former Eagles midfielder was on the losing side of the 1990 showpiece to United as a player and, after seeing his West Ham team beaten on penalties by a Steven Gerrard-inspired Liverpool in 2006, this reverse to Louis van Gaals side completes an unwanted treble.However, Saturdays match may have panned out differently for Palace had a couple of key refereeing decisions gone their way - as Pardew highlighted after the game.Referee Mark Clattenburg awarded Connor Wickham a free-kick when Chris Smalling brought him down in the first-half - but the Palace striker, who was first to his feet and fired into the net, would have benefited from advantage being played. The ref then waved away appeals for a penalty when Zaha went down in the box in extra-time. Chris Smalling brings down Palaces Connor Wickham I was really disappointed with the Connor decision because you could see he was going to get up first and the advantage was really with us, Pardew said.He actually had a free pass to Zaha for a tap-in but he scored anyway. So to be pulled back was really harsh. I also think Wayne Rooneys tackle on Wilf was a penalty.Clattenburg did award Smalling a yellow card for his challenge on Wickham and the United defender picked up a second for dragging Bolasie to the ground in extra time. However, Palace were unable to make their numerical advantage count in the final 15 minutes. Also See: Crystal Palace 1-2 Man Utd - Match report Mourinho to replace LVG ' ' '
