This Week In The NHL: Detroit Red Wings Win Record 21st Straight At Home
Your weekly dose of hockey news is back with what you missed this past week in the NHL.
- The Detroit Red Wings have set a new NHL record of consecutive home wins with 21, after beating the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Tuesday. The record was originally set in the 1929-30 season by the Boston Bruins and tied by the Flyers in 1976.
- Owen Nolan of the San Jose Sharks has announced his retirement, after 18 seasons in the NHL and 1,200 games.
"I guess I've known this day was here for a while," Nolan said during a press conference on Feb. 7. "When your body won’t do what your mind and your heart is willing to do, it’s time to move on. I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've had the opportunity to play with some great players and great teammates."
On Feb. 3, Edmonton Oilers forward Ben Eager hit the Red Wings' Danny Cleary into the boards. The hit aggravated Cleary's two cysts in his left knee that has been bothering him for several weeks. Six days after the hit, he had his cysts drained and will be out for the next 2-3 games.
Tampa Bay Lightning center Dominic Moore was fined $2,500 for an interference infraction that caused New York Rangers forward Ruslan Fedotenko injury during the Feb. 9 game.
Columbus Blue Jackets left-winger Vinny Prospal signed a one-year extension with the team, reportedly for $2.5 million.
