    Red Wings 7, CANUCKS 2

    Canucks endure whipping at home

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (AP) -- Steve Yzerman had a goal and recorded his 900th career assist as the Detroit Red Wings extended their unbeaten streak to five games with a 7-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night.

     Steve Duchesne set up three goals for the Red Wings, who also extended their unbeaten streak over Vancouver to 10 games (8-0-2), a stretch dating back to Feb. 6, 1997.

     Brendan Shanahan, Martin Lapointe and Stacey Roest each had a goal and assist, while Marc Rodgers, Sergei Fedorov and Yuri Butsayev also scored for Detroit, which is 4-0-1 in its last five games.

     Yzerman became the 10th NHL player to reach the 900-assist plateau, and his goal was the 599th of his career. The two points upped his career total to 1,499, eighth on the all-time list. With his next goal, Yzerman will become only the fifth player ever to have 600 more goals and 900 or more assists.

     Enjoying their second seven-goal game of the season, Detroit improved to 12-4-3 and moved into a tie for top spot in the overall NHL standings with the idle Los Angeles Kings.

     Todd Bertuzzi, with his first goal in his last 11 games, and Donald Brashear scored for the Canucks, who fell behind 4-0 before finally getting their offense on track.

     The Canucks, who allowed seven goals for the first time since April 2, had a three-game unbeaten streak (1-0-2) snapped.

     Shanahan, who has goals in three straight games, opened the scoring with a wrist shot inside the right post 3:50 into the game.

     Rodgers, with the first of his career, made it 2-0 deflecting in Duchesne's point shot midway through the first. Roest and Lapointe scored to put the Red Wings up 4-0 by the 8:22 mark of the second period.

     The Canucks finally responded as Bertuzzi and Brashear scored goals 2:26 apart to cut Detroit's lead to 4-2 with 5:10 left in the second.

     Alexander Mogilny thought he made it 4-3 with a minute left in the second, but replays were inconclusive, showing only that the puck struck both posts.

     Fedorov sparked a three-goal third period outburst, scoring 15 seconds into the frame to give the Wings a 5-2 edge.

     Red Wings' forward Tomas Holmstrom, who was playing his team-leading 111th straight game, went down with an injured left leg when he was checked into the boards late in the first period by Vancouver's Donald Brashear. Holmstrom required help leaving the ice and did not return, suffering a bruised leg.
