Red Wings Win NHL Record 21st Consecutive Home Game

Put another record down for the NHL’s modern dynasty. The Detroit Red Wings defeated the Dallas Stars Tuesday night, pushing their home winning streak to a ridiculous 21 games in a row, topping the previous NHL record of 20 shared by the 29-30 Bruins and the 75-76 Flyers. It has been a long 104 days since the Red Wings last lost at home, a November 3rd 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames. Not including this Dallas game, the Red Wings have outscored opponents 84-30 at home during this winning streak and have been flat out dominant. It’s not as if the Red Wings have been feeding on the bottom feeders either. The Wings streak has wins over the Predators (4-1), Blues (3-2, 3-0, 3-1), Coyotes (3-2 SO), Blackhawks (3-2 OT), Flyers (4-3), and Kings (8-2), all being teams currently in the playoff race.  Very few teams have been close to ending the streak, as the Red Wings have been pushed to overtime just 4 times during the streak. The Wings can hang their hats on this streak, as they really battled this year to turn around their home record. Last year, the Wings were mediocre at best at home and vowed to be that much better this year. Well, an NHL record ain’t too shabby and they can place this record right next to their NHL record 12 consecutive road wins. Who knows when the streak might end? The Wings next home games are against the Predators and Sharks, two teams that have given them fits the last few years. However, regardless of those results, we can all congratulate the Red Wings on their incredible accomplishment.
