Luongo clarifies statement about wanting Wings’ win streak still alive

DETROIT – Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo got his wish … the Wings’ home winning streak is still going as the Canucks visit Joe Louis Arena tonight.

Earlier, Luongo wanted the streak to be alive when his squad came to town.

Why?

“Just because it’s fun,” Luongo said. “It’s a great challenge for our team. We’re excited about it and I think guys want to put out a great effort tonight to try and break the streak.

“I didn’t say we were going to beat them, added Luongo when asked if he thought what he said would be used as bulletin board material. “I said it was a challenge for us to come here and try to beat them. I mean, I think guys are excited about that. I never said we were going to come in here and win. I just said we were excited about the opportunity and that it’s a great challenge for our team to try and do something special.”

Vancouver is 20-10-2 as the road team this season.
