DETROIT (AP) - Daniel Sedin scored twice and Roberto Luongo made 39 saves, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.

The Western Conference-leading Canucks have won eight of nine and have built a 10-point lead over second-place Detroit with eight games left in the regular season. The Red Wings, who sit atop the Central Division, are in an 0-2-1 slump and are 4-4-3 this month.

Sedin, the NHL scoring leader with 95 points, has at least one in nine straight games.

Jiri Hudler's power-play goal off a rebound with 8:22 left pulled the Red Wings within a goal.

Howard made 31 saves.
