DETROIT (AP) -- Pavel Datsyuk scored with 5 seconds left to give the Detroit Red Wings 22nd consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Nashville Predators on Friday night.
Two nights after breaking the NHL single-season record for consecutive home victories, the NHL-leading Red Wings tied Boston's multiple-season mark. The Bruins closed the 1929-30 season with 20 victories at home and won their first two the following season.
Detroit can break the record Sunday against San Jose.
Datsyuk beat Rinne with a high wrist shot from the slot after making a move to elude defenseman Ryan Suter. It was Datsyuk's 16th goal,
Datsyuk also had an assist on Johan Franzen's goal. Joey MacDonald made 20 saves, allowing only Nick Spaling's goal. Pekka Rinne stopped 29 shots.
Earlier in the day, Nashville acquired veteran defenseman Hal Gill and a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft from Montreal in exchange for a second-round pick in 2012 and forwards Blake Geoffrion and Robert Slaney.
