from Brian Hedger at NHL.com, The purists have already spoken up. They say that even if the Detroit Red Wings beat the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night at Joe Louis Arena for their 20th straight victory on home ice – tying the NHL record shared by the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and 1975-76 Flyers – it should come with an asterisk. They argue that because neither of those old Bruins and Flyers teams had the advantage of winning games in overtime or shootouts, their home winning streaks are still more impressive and more “legit” than the current run the League-leading Red Wings are riding. If that logic bothers the Wings, however, it’s near-impossible to tell – not because they’re so focused on joining the NHL’s history book yet again, but because they seem so nonchalant about the whole ordeal. continued
