20 Home Wins in a row!

Wow. Did you think we would see this? In this league full of parity where on any given night any team can beat anybody? Well, the Detroit Red Wings have just tied the NHL record for consecutive wins at home with 20 in a row, a mark they now share with the 1975-1976 Philadelphia Flyers and the 1929-1930 Boston Bruins. Their last home loss came back on November 3rd, to the Calgary Flames in a 4-1 decision. Since then? Well, not including this game against Philadelphia, the Wings have outscored their opponents 80-27. That’s an average of 4.21-1.42 goals a game. They aren’t just winning at home – they are demolishing opponents. They have given up more than 2 goals just once at home in that streak and they have only scored fewer than 3 goals only once, in their most recent game against Anaheim to push the streak to 19.  Sure some will say the shootout has aided this streak as the Wings have won multiple games at home in the shootout. Nonetheless, this streak they are on now is one of the most impressive streaks we’ve seen in the modern era and Wings fans can only hope the ride continues as the Wings shoot for sole place of the record against the Dallas Stars.
