Detroit, MI – The Detroit Red Wings now hold the NHL record 1 win over the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena.
The last loss the Red Wings suffered in front of the home crowd was on November 3 against Calgary. Since then, they have ripped off 21 straight wins to pass the record held by the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers.
That streak began with a shutout of Anaheim on November 5 and continued on Tuesday as Joey MacDonald stopped 20 shots and was just 32.8 seconds away from a shutout.
Brad Stuart, Jiri Hudler and Henrik Zetterberg all scored as Detroit stayed atop the NHL standings with its fourth straight win after a pair of losses on the road.
Kari Lehtonen was tagged for all three goals on 37 shots for the Stars, who have dropped three straight. Adam Burish scored late to prevent a shutout.
