    Canucks' Alexander Edler: Earns assist but minus-3 Saturday

    Edler earned an assist but skated to a minus-3 in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh. Edler actually has points in back-to-back games and has now reached the 20-point plateau for the ninth time in his 10-year NHL career. He's not going to come anywhere close to the 49 points he put up in 2011-12, but the veteran blueliner is good for at least 30 and could push for 40 if he and the Canucks can get hot down the stretch.
