The Detroit Red Wings defeated the Dallas Stars in a 3 – 1 win to make history; the Red Wings have set a record of the most consecutive home games won. The record now stands at 21, beating that of the Boston Bruins (1929-1930) and the Philadelphia Flyers (1976).
The record looks to be extended Friday night against tough competitors the Nashville Predators.
After breaking the record, hockey fans will need to worry about Red Wings having home ice in the playoffs. Detroit may not need to worry about being the best in the league, but definitely need to worry about being the best in the Western Conference. Expect the Wings to continue their fight as if they are out of the playoffs.
