DETROIT - Daniel Sedin scored his second goal of the game with 15.4 seconds left in regulation and Alex Burrows had the only score in the shootout, lifting the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-3 victory that snapped the Detroit Red Wings' NHL-record, 23-game, home-winning streak.

Detroit hadn't lost at Joe Louis Arena since Nov. 3 against Calgary.

The NHL-leading Red Wings hold a one-point edge over Vancouver in the Western Conference.

A sold-out crowd stood during the shootout, which started with Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo stopping Jiri Hudler's shot. Detroit's Jimmy Howard then went low to smother David Booth's attempt.

Henrik Zetterberg missed the net on Detroit's second attempt, and Alex Edler was then denied by Howard.

Todd Bertuzzi, who signed a two-year extension with the Red Wings earlier in the day, couldn't put Detroit ahead. Burrows then won it with a backhanded shot.


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)—Saku Koivu scored the only goal in the shootout to lift Anaheim over Carolina.

Corey Perry, who reached 30 goals for the third time in his career, and Luca Sbisa scored in regulation for Anaheim. Jerome Samson and Jamie McBain had goals for Carolina.

Jonas Hiller had 30 saves for the Ducks, who went 5-1-2 on their eight-game, 15-day road trip. Anaheim improved to 2-22-2 when trailing after two periods.

Carolina's Justin Peters, starting his second straight and playing in his fourth consecutive game because Cam Ward is injured, made 35 saves.

The Hurricanes' Jiri Tlusty assisted on Samson's goal to extend his point streak to nine games, two short of the longest run since the club moved to North Carolina from Hartford in 1997.


SUNRISE, Fla. (AP)—Matt Cullen and Erik Christensen scored in the shootout in Minnesota's victory against Florida.

Cullen and Kyle Brodziak scored in regulation, Dany Heatley had two assists, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 41 shots for the Wild.

The Wild won for just the second time in nine games.

Bergenheim and Mikael Samuelsson scored for the Panthers, who got 26 saves from Jose Theodore. Florida has lost four straight.


TORONTO (AP)—Patrick Marleau scored two goals, and San Jose sent stumbling Toronto to its seventh loss in eight games.

James Reimer started in goal against the Sharks and made 24 saves, but his record dropped to 11-9-4. Marleau was the only player to beat him with a pair of second-period goals that lifted the Sharks (32-20-7) to their first win in five games. Antti Niemi made 29 saves.

Jake Gardiner scored for the Maple Leafs (29-25-7), who are 1-6-1 since Feb. 7.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Shootout goals by T.J. Oshie and Andy McDonald pushed St. Louis past Nashville.

Chris Stewart and Vladimir Sobotka scored for St. Louis in regulation. Roman Josi and Colin Wilson had goals for Nashville.

Pekka Rinne stopped 22 shots for the Predators.

Stewart got the only goal of the opening period, then Josi and Wilson gave Nashville a 2-1 lead. Just 34 seconds after Wilson's goal, Sobotka tied it.
