Alexandre Burrows scored the winning goal in a shootout as the Vancouver Canucks won 4-3 to end the Detroit Red Wings’ National Hockey League-record 23-game home winning streak.
Vancouver’s Daniel Sedin tied the game with his second goal with 15.4 seconds left in the third period last night at Joe Louis Arena.
It was the Red Wings’ first defeat on home ice since Nov. 3 against Calgary.
Darren Helm gave the Red Wings the lead in the first period and Sedin tied the score in the second period.
Kyle Quincey’s score put Detroit ahead 2-1 in the third period and Cody Hodgson tied the game 2-2 more than seven minutes later. The Red Wings took the lead again 20 seconds later on Justin Abdelkader’s goal.
Detroit (41-18-3) leads the league with 85 points, one point ahead of Vancouver (39-16-6).
