VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Two teams fighting for playoff position in their respective conference face off on Saturday when the Vancouver Canucks host the Ottawa Senators at GM Place.

The Canucks are four points behind the Colorado Avalanche for first place in the Northwest Division with 10 games remaining. Detroit leads the West with 92 points - four ahead of Vancouver.

Ottawa is tied with the Toronto Maples Leafs for fourth place in the Eastern Conference with 88 points. The Senators are one point behind the Boston Bruins for the third spot in the conference and first place in the Northeast Division.

Vancouver has won just two of its last six games, avoiding a three-game winless streak with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Geoff Sanderson scored the game-winner with 33 seconds left in overtime and Martin Rucinsky had a goal and an assist for the Canucks, who recorded a point for the eighth time in 10 games.

Ottawa had a two-game winning streak snapped with a 4-2 road loss to the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

Marian Hossa and Martin Havlat scored for the Senators, who rallied from a pair of one-goal deficits before falling to 1-1-0 on a five-game road trip.

Vancouver posted a 4-3 overtime victory at Ottawa on November 27. The Canucks have won the last two meetings with the Senators after losing three in a row.
