The Detroit Red Wings tied the NHL's record for consecutive wins at home and were hoping to break that record on Tuesday night as they hosted the Dallas Stars. The Red Wings were able to break the previous mark set by the Philadelphia Flyers at 20 consecutive home games, by taking down the Stars 3-1 to set the record at 21 consecutive wins.
Henrik Zetterberg put his mark on the scoreboard first on a power play goal, assisted by Pavel Datsyuk and Nicklas Lidstrom to put the Wings up 1-0. Brad Stuart picked up another goal for the Red Wings a few minutes afterwards to give the Wings a 2-0 lead entering the second period. Jiri Hudler picked up his 18th goal of the season to give Detroit a 3-0 lead in the third period before Adam Burish netted the only goal for the Stars.
