Sedin "Puppy Power"?

05/23/2011 at 12:17am EDT

From Jason Botchford at The White Towel:

Henrik Sedin leads the NHL in postseason scoring. Daniel Sedin is second in goals.

“It’s pretty good for being the two worst playoff players in the league,” Henrik quipped.

Sure is. Maybe it’s puppy power. More likely, it’s health.

More, plus video below.

Two weeks ago, Henrik looked like he was having trouble skating across the blueline. On Sunday, the only trouble being had was from those trying to defend him.

Henrik was flying, like only the Sedins can fly. They may not be the fastest players you’ve ever seen, but their ability to create space, acres and acres of space, when they are on, is fascinating. They can work on the ice like a combine harvester on a wheat field.

Just ask Sami Salo. The Finnish gunslinger shrugged when asked about his two slap shot goals.

“I don’t think it matters who is playing the point when (Henrik) has the puck,” Salo said.

And it may not matter how well the Sharks play the rest of this series. If Henrik continues to skate like he has in the first four games, they are going to have a tough time winning three of the next four.

Read the rest here.

Not sure about “puppy power” but whatever you want to call it, it was impressive.

Iain MacIntyre at the Vancouver Sun called it “Henrik’s Sedinery” which seems pretty damn fitting.

Case in point: His ridiculous setup for Alex Burrows which snagged the team’s fourth goal.
