One Game Late – But Still A Beauty! The Vancouver Canucks completed an epic last minute comeback and snapped Detroit’s 23-game home winning streak in a 4-3 shootout victory at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday. Daniel Sedin slammed home his 28th of the season with only 16 seconds remaining in the third period to tie the game, allowing linemate Alex Burrows to bury his patented backhand winner in the third round of the shootout the clinch the win. The Hat Trick Helm’s Hard Work Darren Helm took advantage of a brutal giveaway by Kevin Bieksa on the Detroit blue line to give the Red Wings the lead halfway through the first period on Thursday. Helm formed Detroit’s most dangerous line alongside Justin Abdelkader and Drew Miller, generating another key goal for the Red Wings late in the third period. Cody Hodgson benefited from a lucky bounce to pull even with the Red Wins in the final frame, but Abdelkader’s response twenty seconds later restored the home team’s intimidating lead.  Luongo Locks
