Sedin twins play their last home game before retirement; combine to score twice in a storybook finish: Being from Vancouver it's difficult to have perspective, but as Henrik and Daniel Sedin retire there is talk that these are two generational players; the best to have ever played for Vancouver. Certainly they have been the best pair of players for the Canucks, truly a combined value that is more than the sum of their parts.
