• The Red Wings look for their record-setting 21st home win in a row tonight as they host the Dallas Stars.

    As in their last several games, they’ll do so without goalie Jimmy Howard, who is expected to return from his broken finger on Sunday against the San Jose Sharks (but could be back on Friday against the Nashville Predators).

    Detroit will use the same lineup they’ve used for the last two games. Mike Commodore is the healthy scratch on defense, Danny Cleary remains out up front and Joey MacDonald gets the start in goal.

    Game time is 7:30 PM on FS+.

  • 20 SOG? Nice!

  • Wings absolutely in the driver’s seat so far but two goals isn’t much of a lead.

  • Thought Ott was going to score there. Drew a penalty instead. More nervous than I should be.

    Clark Rasmussen February 15, 2012 1:58 AM
  • That was close.

  • Come on guys… Wake up! Don’t blow this opportunity in one period… f*ck!

    SYfanSD February 15, 2012 2:27 AM
  • Stars absolutely buzzing in the third. Not going to be easy.

    Clark Rasmussen February 15, 2012 2:31 AM
  • I’m nervous

  • Hudler!

    SYfanSD February 15, 2012 2:45 AM
  • Hudler with a sweet little shot there.

    Clark Rasmussen February 15, 2012 2:46 AM
  • Long two minutes.

  • We just witnessed NHL history! What is more amazing is that we once won 62 in a season and never accomplished something like this. Congrats boys! You earned it.

    SYfanSD February 15, 2012 2:56 AM
  • f*ck the shutout. Shutouts don’t matter. Wins matter and this is a big one.

    Clark Rasmussen February 15, 2012 2:56 AM
  • Setting a new NHL record for consecutive home wins doesn’t mean much in the long run. There’s still a massive battle for the Central Division underway. The Red Wings are still a .500 team on the road. The games that really matter don’t start for two more months.

    That said, it’s incredibly cool to see. Twenty-one wins in a row at home is something no team in NHL history has ever done. In a league that’s been around this long, anytime you can do that is something special. It is a legitimate historical moment.

    It’s also two important points on a night the St. Louis Blues lost. It’s another big win for Joey MacDonald, who looks more and more like the Red Wings’ backup goalie once Jimmy Howard returns. It’s more scoring from their top players (Zetterberg, Hudler) and their defense (Stuart).

    Things I liked:

    Detroit got out to a fantastic start and owned things early. They capitalized on chances and got the 2-0 lead. No need to fight back tonight.

    Things I didn’t like:

    Whether because the Wings let up or otherwise, the Stars really came on in the third. That could have been dangerous but the Wings rode it out.

  • Nice to be back home after a few days at sea. Go Wings!

  • We’ve got a shoplifter in the attacking zone! No wait… It’s just Pasha.
