You'll all be happy to know that here in Canada on the TSN site, the Red Wings historic victory is featured JUST below a Raptors loss, a Sens win, and a story on a CFL team.

Canada. Knows. Hockey.

Yea what a joke! Obviously they didn't care.

A game between 2 of the top 6 seeded teams that didn't go to overtime? Wow.



Nashville has us, Vancouver, St. Louis and San Jose coming up next. They'll probably drop some points there.


St. Louis has 15 of next 20 on the road.

Chicago has four more games against St. Louis, 3 more against us (2 at the Joe), Nashville twice, NY Rangers twice.




As long as the Wings stay steady and don't sleep on opponents at home, we'll be fine.

And the Blackhawks lost AGAIN.


Always nice. It's too bad they had to lose to Nashville though. They're closer to the Wings in the central points-wise than the Hawks.

So long as the Wings don't take against the Central, I think the other Central teams have much tougher schedules. So again, barring some inability to beat St. Louis, Nashville and Chicago, I think we're okay in the division. But if the Wings want the Presidents Trophy they can't afford to slack off, the Rangers are one point behind with THREE games in hand still. Also, Vancouver is right on our tail as well if they catch up in games with wins.

I turned over to the Leafs-Flames game on Sportsnet. Joe Bowen did a quick scoreboard update, the Wings score was last. Also it took Joe a couple seconds to say the Wings set the record. Then he mentioned about the extra opportunities we have to win with OT and the Shootout.

Screw 'em! You can't discredit a record because of a rule change. I think it's more impressive because they have extra chances to lose, so it evens out because they've gone 21 games without a loss. If the Leafs set the record, Joe Bowen would have a heart attack and would have to change his pants after the game because he got so excited! Plus Leaf fans would start celebrating downtown.

I'm glad the Leafs are losing 3-1, and are about to lose their 4th in a row, heh heh heh.

Presidents Trophy? A nice little bonus.

1st seed? Definitely more important than the presidents trophy though I'm not sure how much it matters. All the teams are going to be a major pain in the ass.

I hate that people try to discredit records because of rule changes. Previous home winning streak in shootout era was 14 I believe (albeit its only been a handful of seasons). We increased that number by 50% and still counting. And if shootouts give that much of an unfair advantage, why has no one else gotten close to the home winning streak record? why has no one been close to 62 wins? If people want to play that card, we should take away all the Habs and Leafs cups from back when they had a monopoly on canadian prospects, or when there were only 6 NHL teams, or when the Stanley Cup was a challenge cup. We should take away all of Gretzky's records because he used a curved stick.

The only legit strike against this record is our away record, and if they can finish with 25-28 road wins on the season, which I believe they will, it becomes a non-issue.

How is our current road record, a strike against the historic home winning streak?

Absolutely incredible Red Wings! I am so freakin proud of this team right now. 21 wins in a row at home......absolutely phenomal. f*** anyone trying to "discredit" this record. If ANYTHING its even that more impressive in todays modern era with league parity being at such an all time high.

WOOOOO GO RED WINGS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very proud of this team. They earned it tonight with a strong effort. People can write off the record if they want, but the fact is the Red Wings just made history playing in the toughest division in hockey at a time when there has never been more parity in the league overall. Not to mention, all the wear and tear from travel they have endured since the start of December. The longest home win streak since the lockout was 14, so it's not like teams have even come close to approaching the Red Wings feat recently.

Awesome night -- one of those games you will never forget as a fan. This is special. :yahoo:

Sorry Esquire, I agree with Barrie.
If a historic hockey event like 21 straight home wins in the NHL is listed below the three stories you mentioned, then it's hardly an example of Canada knowing hockey.
Sorry, I just don't see it.

I agree 100%.

The Leafs lost 5-1!

Mickey and Ken made some good points tonight about the extra wins with OT and shootout. They said the 1975-76 Flyers were able to take advantage of weak teams like the Kansas City Scouts and Washington Capitals. In 2011-12 there's more parity.

Still I think with the extra chances to lose with the OT and shootout, it's more impressive because we've gone 21 games without a loss, when there's a guaranteed winner every game.

Topseed is HUGE going into the playoffs considering we can't lose at home right now.
