Red Wings beat Flyers, 4-3, tie home-win record
DETROIT – The Flyers tried to protect a special segment in the franchise’s history Sunday night.
But despite the first two-goal game of Brayden Schenn’s young career, it didn’t happen.
The Detroit Red Wings tied an NHL record with their 20th consecutive home win, 4-3, at the reverberating Joe Louis Arena.
They equaled the record shared by the 1975-76 Flyers and 1929-30 Boston Bruins.
Johan Franzen snapped a 3-3 tie just 52 seconds into the third period, taking a touch pass from Nicklas Lidstrom in front and tapping it past Sergei Bobrovsky.
