Have you heard? My beloved Detroit Red Wings set the new NHL record with 23 straight win at home (Joe Louis Arena in Detroit). The Wings broke the record of 22nd straight win by the Boston Bruins in 1929-30 season. To make it even better is the victory 3-2 against the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks eliminated the Wings from 2nd round in the last two playoffs, so to get the winning record in a game against the Sharks would be "extra icing" on the cake!
How about the beautiful goal by Datsyuk with only 5 seconds left in regulation in the game against the Predators on Tuesday night? You got to love that kid with his dazzling move, carrying the puck like as if it was on a string and shooting into the net where no one thought would be possible.
Let's not forget Franzen "the Mule", hard at work as ever. Next game is Tuesday, Feb. 21st in Chicago against the Blackhawks then back to Joe Louis Arena on Thursday, Feb. 23rd against the Canucks. This is almost as exciting as the playoffs because this kind of winning record only happens every 8 decades. Anyone says otherwise would be "unsportmanship"!
