ST. PAUL, Minn. – Aaron Voros and Eric Belanger scored to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

It was the fourth straight win for Minnesota, which moved into sole possession of first place in the Northwest Division.

Mike Brown scored for Vancouver, which lost in regulation for just the second time in 13 outings to fall two points behind the Wild. The shutout streak by Roberto Luongo ended at 210 minutes, 34 seconds.

Voros scored an improbable goal late in the second period, lifting a pass from Marian Gaborik over Luongo’s shoulder. After passing to Marian Gaborik from below the goal line, Voros – better known for his physical play than his stickwork – skated to edge of the left crease and took the shot as he was being checked to the ice by Lukas Krajicek and Byron Ritchie.
