A regulation loss would have the Canucks matching their fewest points in 15 games into a season (11) since 1997-98 (8 pts: 3-10-2), which it did.

Detroit defeated the Canucks 3-1, to lose 5 of 6 games on their road trip (1-5-0); leaving Vancouver with only 1 win in their last 11 games (1-9-1).

Canucks had their lone goal from Daniel Sedin (5), assists going to Henrik Sedin (4) and Troy Stecher (2).

Vancouver is now 1-6-1 on the road.

Canucks starting goalie Ryan Miller, stopped 24 of 27 shots in the game, his 7th straight loss this season.

Miller, after tonight, is 1-7-0 with a 2.79 GAA and a .907 save percentage.

Canucks, are tied for 25th place in the NHL (with Dallas, Calgary); and are tied for 5th place in the Pacific division with Calgary, with 11 points; 8 points behind the Oilers, 1 point ahead of the Arizona Coyotes, who have two games in hand on Vancouver.

Detroit would make it tough for the Canucks late in the game, as they would go up by two goals, on Steve Ott’s first goal as a Red Wing, his first of the season, assisted by Jonathan Ericsson (4) and Alexey Marchenko (4) at 15:14.
