Tonight will be a tough one for Vancouver Canucks fans as they get their last chance to watch two beloved players on home ice.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin have announced their retirement and, because the Canucks are out of the playoffs, tonight marks the twins' last appearance before hometown fans.

Canucks' president of hockey operations Trevor Linden says the game against the Arizona Coyotes will be highlighted by celebrations marking the Sedin's one-thousand-point-plus careers.

Rookie Canuck Adam Gaudette says the night will be very special and the fan response will give players the extra jump needed to help the Sedins notch a win, with just one more road game remaining in the team's season.

After tonight, the Canucks close out their season Saturday in Edmonton -- and once again, you can hear the broadcast on
