Detroit (7-2-2) at Vancouver (6-5-0), 10:00 p.m. EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings

look to end a five-game road trip on a winning note when they

visit the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

Detroit won the first two games on the trip, stretching its

winning streak to five games, but a 5-4 loss in overtime to the

Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday and a 4-2 setback at the San Jose

Sharks on Thursday has dampened the team's spirits.

Despite the back-to-back losses, Detroit's new acquisition has

been paying dividends so far this season.

Marian Hossa has been stellar for the defending Stanley Cup

champions, notching at least one point in nine straight games.

The right wing had one goal in Thursday's loss.

Vancouver is opening a six-game homestand and is searching for

its third straight win.

The Canucks are coming off a wild, 7-6 shootout victory over the

Anaheim Ducks on Friday. The contest featured five goals in a

2:39 span during the second period and ended on defenseman

Mattias Ohlund's goal in the 13th round of the shootout.

Alex Burrows scored the game-winner 27 seconds into overtime as

Vancouver defeated Detroit, 4-3, on October 16 in the teams'

first meeting this season.
