Red Wings Vs. Stars: Detroit Goes For Record Against Dallas

Having tied the NHL record for consecutive home wins, the Detroit Red Wings will try to set a new mark on Tuesday against Dallas.

The Detroit Red Wings could give new meaning to the moniker "Hockeytown" with a win on Tuesday.

Detroit hosts the Dallas Star with a chance to set the NHL record for consecutive home wins. The Red Wings tied the record at 20 straight on Sunday with a 4-3 win over Philadelphia.

In a bit of symmetry, the Flyers were the last team to win 20 straight at home, tying a mark first set by the Boston Bruins during the 1929-1930 season.

The Red Wings have won three straight overall and are currently sitting atop the Western Conference standings with an NHL-best 78 points.

Dallas comes in at 28-24-3 (13-13-1 on the road, if you’re wondering) and losers of two straight.

Goalie Joey MacDonald was summoned from the bench just 10 days ago after starter Jimmy Howard broke his pinkie. MacDonald has a .926 save percentage over his five games this season. Sunday against Philly he gave up three goals through the first two period but had a perfect third to preserve the win.
