There were some stellar performance from players over the weekend but it is hard not to bring focus to the Detroit Red Wings for winning their 20th consecutive home game to tie the NHL record. It has been more than 3 months since the Wings have lost at the Joe as they join the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and 1975-76 Flyers as the only NHL clubs to ever string together this many victories on home ice in one season. Absolutely amazing, and somewhat ironic, as the win came in a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Wings will try and set a new NHL record tomorrow night against the Dallas Stars. Many feel the record will be broken, but only to lose Friday night against the Nashville Predators, a team that seems to always have Detroit’s number. However, number one netminder Jimmy Howard, who is injured with a broken index finger, looks to return Friday night against the Predators. If the Wings win against the Stars tomorrow night expect the media to be buzzing about Friday’s match-up.
