VANCOUVER (CP) - Johan Franzen scored a short-handed goal at 6:19 of the third period for a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night that gave the Detroit Red Wings their ninth consecutive victory, tying a franchise record.

Franzen fired a low shot that went through the legs of rookie Canuck defenceman Patrick Coulombe and the five-hole of goaltender Roberto Luongo.

Luongo, who had made some great saves to keep Vancouver in the game, hung his head afterwards.

Valtteri Filppula and Henrik Zetterberg scored for Detroit (12-4-1), who last lost Oct. 21 in Edmonton.

It's the fifth time in Detroit history that the Red Wings have won nine consecutive games. The last streak was from Oct. 13 to Nov. 1 last season.

Henrik Sedin, on a power play, and Kevin Bieksa scored for the Canucks. Trevor Linden also earned his 400th assist and 700th point as a Canuck.

The Canucks (8-10-1) have lost three games in a row.

Detroit goalie Dominik Hasek came into the game having posted back-to-back shutouts. Sedin's second-period goal broke his streak after 181 minutes, 17 seconds.

The Canucks thought they had tied the game 3-3 at 9:20 of the third period when Alex Burrows scored. But referee Bill McCreary called off the goal because he had called Jan Bulis for interference.
