Wings home win streak at 19 with SO win

Associated Press  |  Last updated February 10, 2012
Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored shootout goals to give the Detroit Red Wings their 19th consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night. Detroit tied the 1970-71 Boston Bruins for the second-longest home streak in NHL history. The 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers and the 1929-30 Bruins won 20 consecutive games at home. Jakub Kindl scored for Detroit. Joey MacDonald made 29 saves in regulation and overtime. Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom played in his 1,549th game to tie former Detroit star Alex Delvecchio's NHL record for games with one team. It's also the second-most games played in Detroit franchise history, behind Gordie Howe at 1,687. George Parros scored for Anaheim, and Jonas Hiller stopped 23 shots. Teemu Selanne scored in the shootout. The Ducks' Cam Fowler hit the goal post on a breakaway with 1:40 left in overtime and the teams playing 3-on-3. An apparent goal by Anaheim's Niklas Hagman 3:35 into the second period was waved off because of Parros' penalty for goalie interference. Parros scored his first goal of the season to open the scoring with 3:43 left in the first period. The Anaheim enforcer deflected in Rod Pelley's shot from the point. Kindl tied it with 1:18 left in the opening period, beating Hiller with a wrist shot from the point. It was Kindl's second goal. NOTES: It was Detroit right wing Tomas Holmstrom's 1,000th game. He joins Howe, Delvecchio, Lidstrom Steve Yzerman and Kris Draper as the only players who have played 1,000 games for the Red Wings. ... Detroit right wing Danny Cleary didn't play because he had his left knee drained and got a cortisone shot. He is expected to miss two more games. Jan Mursak replaced him in the lineup. ... Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard missed his fourth game because of a broken right index finger. He hopes to start taking shots in practice Saturday. ... Fowler grew up in the Detroit-area suburb of Farmington Hills and played junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League. Windsor is across the Detroit River from Detroit.
