With a tight 2-1 win, the Detroit Red Wings ended their four-game losing streak and the Vancouver Canucks’ four-game winning streak on Wednesday.
Detroit has developed an interesting pattern so far this season. The Red Wings won their first two, lost the next two, went on a four game winning streak and then lost four consecutive games (0-2-2) before tonight’s win.
Meanwhile the Canucks had been riding a fine line. Their four-game winning streak has been impressive, yet they did it by the skin of their teeth; all four of those victories were by one goal, with two coming in overtime and one in the shootout.
Neither team created a ton of chances, as the Red Wings fired 27 shots on goal while the Canucks managed a mere 20. Tomas Tatar‘s late second period tally ended up being the game-winner.
