VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Roberto Luongo made 25 saves, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night for their sixth straight win.
Luongo's home shutout streak against the Wild ended at 228 minutes, 26 seconds but he held on for the win. He still hasn't lost a game in regulation this season.
Luongo lowered his goals-against average to 1.45, behind only Ottawa's Craig Anderson. Kevin Bieksa and Jannik Hansen scored for Vancouver (8-2-2).
Devin Setoguchi had the only goal for the Wild (6-6-1), whose two-game winning streak was snapped. Minnesota hasn't won in Vancouver since Jan. 31, 2009 (0-9-2).
Darcy Kuemper stopped 28 shots in a losing effort in his NHL debut. Kuemper was called up because Josh Harding was dealing with the effects of medication he takes for multiple sclerosis.
