It would be quite a feat to pull off with 4 games against Nashville but our record now is 40-16-8 with 18 games remaining. Last year's record was 58-16-8, exactly 18 wins more than our current record. I believe it can be done but with our team leading scorer Hank out, it would be amazing. Just thought that was kind of weird...

Well, the team last year went 17-1-3 in the last 21 games. That was almost unheard of. Combined with Hasek's injury, it got us the President's Trophy.

Yeah, I hope they can do it again. Although I do not wish for a first round exit dry.gif

You honestly think it can be done? I know it is not impossible, but based on the numbers you are showing here (I haven't tried to verify the accuracy), wouldn't it require the Wings to 18-0 for the rest of the year? Have the Wings ever won 18 games in a row? My gut tells me that they haven't since the NHL record is 17 consecutive wins. tongue.gif

The longest win streak for the Wings is 9 (on several occasions). They have had longer unbeaten streaks but always have gotten hung up on 9 in a row.

with Hasek, Zetterberg, Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson and whoever the hell next injured, i don't exactly like our chances of 18 consecutive wins...

Not to be the rain on your parade, but the Wings aren't going to finish with 18 consecutive victories (19 if you count Tuesday's tilt with the Hawks).

I would be more than satisfied if they finished the season 52-22-8.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).
