Canucks End Red Wings' Streak in Shootout

Newest Red Wing Kyle Quincey scored in his first game back with Detroit and the Wings' third line contributed to three goals but it didn't stop the Vancouver Canucks from ending their NHL-record home winning streak at 23 games, defeating the Red Wings 4-3 in a shootout.

Alexandre Burrows scored the only goal of the tiebreaker on Vancouver's third shot, beating Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard high.

Vancouver netminder Roberto Luongo stopped Jiri Hudler, Henrik Zetterberg and Todd Bertuzzi while Howard made saves on David Booth and Alexander Edler.

The Red Wings appeared to be headed to their 24th consecutive home win until the Canucks tied things up with 16 seconds remaining in regulation.

Off an icing call, Vancouver won the draw in the Detroit zone and kept control of the puck, getting a couple chances before Daniel Sedin blasted a shot from the high slot through a screen and past Howard.

Darren Helm had opened the game's scoring with 8:44 left in the first period. On a two on one with Justin Abdelkader, Helm looked like he was going to pass all the way down the ice before finally flipping a weak shot past Luongo to give the Red Wings their first lead.

Daniel Sedin made it 1-1 with 6:26 left in the second period. Edler's shot from above the right faceoff circle was slowed down by Henrik Sedin before Daniel picked it up at the edge of the crease and shoveled it in around Howard.

Quincey restored the Detroit lead at 6:08 of the third, swatting a shot from the slot past Luongo off a feed from Abdelkader.

With 6:34 remaining, Cody Hodgson's attempted pass from the left circle went off Detroit defender Niklas Kronwall's skate and past Howard to tie things back up.

Just twenty seconds later, Abdelkader made it 3-2. Helm drove to the net and put a shot off the post, with the puck sliding up to Luongo's pad. Abdelkader jumped in and knocked the loose puck into the net.

Luongo finished the night with 33 saves on 36 Detroit chances while Howard stopped 40 of the 43 shots he faced.

Neither team scored a power play goal on the night, with the Wings having five tries with the extra attacker to Vancouver's four.

The Red Wings are next in action on Saturday night when they host Quincey's former team, the Colorado Avalanche.


Notes: With the Red Wings now carrying eight defensemen on their roster, Jakub Kindl and Mike Commodore were both healthy scratches... Pavel Datsyuk missed his second game since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday... Quincey wore #27, after having worn #45 and #4 in his first stint with the Red Wings.

The Red Wings look to rebound from a pretty awful effort in Chicago on Tuesday night and keep their home winning streak alive as they host the Vancouver Canucks tonight.

New acquisition Kyle Quincey will make the first appearance of his return to the Wings. He's slotted to play alongside Jonathan Ericsson on the third pairing, as well as see power play (he practiced alongside Ian White) and penalty kill time.

Jimmy Howard will get his second start after coming back from his broken index finger.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.

Worried about the Filppula line matching up against Kesler, a little. Decent shift there, though.

Surprise! Worthless power play!

No one expected Helm to shoot there. Great to see him finish another one.

Blown power plays will bite the Wings in the ass. This one looks a lot like Tuesday.

Yep, of course the Canucks score on a play like that. White can't stay off his goalie.

Go figure

Big hit by Kronner. He's getting better about those hops.q

Best trade of the deadline, thus far. Quincey makes it 2-1.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 9:37 PM

 

Why can't they play like this on the road?

Posted by SYfanSD on 2/23/2012 at 9:43 PM

 

And that should have been cleared when they had it behind the net.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 9:51 PM

 

Saw that coming.

Posted by SYfanSD on 2/23/2012 at 9:51 PM

 

Abbey! Helm is on fire!

Posted by SYfanSD on 2/23/2012 at 9:52 PM

 

Goddamn, I love that third line.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 9:52 PM

 

I don't even want to say it... Stupid penalty coming up?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 9:59 PM

 

That was probably the most venomous 'F***' I've ever yelled. Really? Just really?

Tying goal off a very generous icing. Surprise.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 10:07 PM

 

I swear the refs are against the streak.

Posted by SYfanSD on 2/23/2012 at 10:08 PM

 

f*cking shootouts.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/23/2012 at 10:17 PM

 

I'm getting the feeling that we're never going to hear the end of this, though I don't know why. Hope my gut's wrong.
