DETROIT — Less than 30 hours after being burdened with a five-game losing skid, the Detroit Red Wings are suddenly headed in the other direction.
Damien Brunner had two goals and two assists, and Joakim Andersson scored twice for the Red Wings in an 8-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.
The Red Wings ended their losing streak with a 4-0 win over Nashville on Saturday night and followed it up with a rout of the Canucks.
“This was a tough game. You’re playing at 5:00 after playing at 7:00 the night before,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. “It’s one on your schedule you look at, you don’t know if you’ll have an opportunity to win. We feel real fortunate to have gotten back-to-back wins.”
