Red Wings slip past Canucks 2-1

 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Tomas Tatar scored his first goal of the season late in the second period and the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 on Wednesday.

Daniel Alfredsson had the other goal for the Red Wings (7-4-2), while Jimmy Howard made 19 saves as Detroit snapped a four-game slide.

Daniel Sedin scored for Vancouver (9-5-1), which finished with a season-low 20 shots and had its four-game winning streak come to an end.

Roberto Luongo stopped 25 shots in taking the loss. Henrik Sedin set up Vancouver’s first goal to extend his point streak to 10 games (three goals, nine assists).
