at least it's not just us?
That was Talbot's fault!
And we tie it again. If Jimmy was healthy we'd be winning this game. Hopefully we can pull this out.
Zetterberg with the goal. Huge to tie it up before the period ends.
What a hell of a game so far.
We want more PP goals!
The Shanahammer gonna have fun reviewing this game's tape.
MOAR PPGs plz!
gotta get better. drw are already playing playoff hockey, keeping the scoring chances down and playing good D.
Anyone got an update? No NBC Sports
2nd intermission 3-3
Regular goals OK too!
The Mule with the goal from Lidstrom and White. Great game right now.
Ohhhhh, Filppula hit the crossbar!!
Wide open net!
Abs with another block!
Woo, penalty killed!
When the puck is in the air, anything goes? It was ridiculous all around.
So you can push someone down on a breakaway and not get a penalty? Sweet!
I Guess it's just like shoving someone off the puck. He didn't trip him or anything, just guessing since I don't know the exact rules on that scenario.
I suppose it is just like bodying someone. If you're in good enough position, I guess it's cool.
Need to attck more, seems like they are just playing prevent.
Erricson with a nice play
Extra "attacker," let's get an ENG.
less than a minute! And the Flyers had to take a penalty! Looking good!
PP for the wings. This should just about do it.
What a finish. Nice job by the crowd, too.
Red Wings win! 20 in a row. Good game
Yay! 20 home wins in a row!!!
Congrats to the Wings!
Woooooo!!!!! Ties the record!!
Maybe not quite as impressive as the older streaks, but I don't think it'll get an asterisk in the record books. Still pretty impressive that the last few wins have been had with our backup goalies. Pretty cool. Now we need to somehow get this type of play on the road.
If you mean because the Wings won games in OT, overtime was around in the 1929-30 season when the Bruins had 20 in a row (10 minute OT period, not sudden death, final score at the end of OT was the deciding factor). When Philly did it there wasn't an overtime, but for both teams there was a significant advantage by only having a limited number of teams to play (and general lack of widely disbursed talent).
10 teams total in 1929, 18 in 1975. I think that makes it about a wash.
some people are factoring in the talent being more equally distrubuted across than league now, than it was before. With the exception of a couple of teams in each conference nearly every team is above .500, at the moment. So while the Wings have won some games in shootouts and OT, and I think like you said the competitive balance in today's NHL somewhat offsets that, when comparing it to those two teams streaks.
Regardless, it still is amazing streak in today's NHL. They still need to up their play on the road to certian degree, if they want to win the Cup.
I think less teams makes it harder, you're playing the same teams multiple times. You probably run into some of the best teams a few times. With a talent disparity between teams that means the best are even better compared to the rest of the league.
I guess it comes down to someone's personal opinion if a streak means more if it's against some really good teams and some really bad teams, or a bunch of more average teams.
Amazing. Great accomplishment for the Wings.
It's great to tie the record, but I'm more impressed they beat a solid team like the Flyers with Joey MacDonald between the pipes.
Joey Mac flubbed one, but was otherwise pretty darn solid. I think the Wings have their backup guy. Game-winning tic-tac-toe was really awesome. Two PPG also nice to see. When the Wings are moving the puck tape to tape they are an exceptionally dangerous team.
Jeremy Roenick went into the Coyotes Ring of Honor tonight, but he'll always be a Blackhawk to me.
Great game to watch..It was like a playoff atmosphere ...Epic..Let's finish it Tuesday ..Go Wings ...
