DETROIT -- He was a member of three Stanley Cup teams in Detroit and finished with 401 career victories, 10th overall in the NHL.

A Phoenix-area resident, Cooper has been a fervent and knowledgeable fan of...
Pavel Datsyuk scored the game-winner with less than six seconds left in regulation, and Detroit won its 22nd consecutive game on home ice with a 2-1 decision over Nashville at Joe Louis Arena.
In this episode of The 303:30, presented by Brewhouse South, we talk about Chicago’s nine-game losing streak, if the Preds can defeat the Detroit Red Wings in their own barn tonight, the Hal Gill trade that made Blake Geoffrion a fourth-generation Montreal Canadien, and we even sit down with USA Today’s Kevin Allen and tackle the Rick Nash/Jeff Carter love-fest head on.

Much has been typed and hyped about the impressive home win-streak the Red Wings have secured in the history books. 21 consecutive wins, the most in a single season surpassing the Flyers who previously held the record is a testament to how the Red Wings and their style of play in their own barn can truly dominate any other team in the NHL.
Johan Franzen scored his team-leading 23rd goal to open the scoring at 12:44.
