(AP) — The Detroit Red Wings continued their amazing run at home even without their No. 1 goaltender.
They will likely be without Jimmy Howard again Friday night when they try to extend their home win streak to 19 games as they meet the Anaheim Ducks.
Detroit (36-17-2) opened a six-game homestand with Wednesday’s 4-2 win over Edmonton. The Red Wings’ last loss at Joe Louis Arena was a 4-1 defeat to Calgary on Nov. 3.
“The home win streak is really unique,” said left wing Drew Miller, who has scored in four of his last five games. “I don’t think we go into it really trying to say, ‘Hey, let’s do it to get this streak.’ I think we’re just trying to establish our game at home and play night in and night out the way that we should play.”
