Red Wings top Flyers 4-3 and match NHL record shared by 2 teams with 20th straight win at home
DETROIT (AP) ' The Detroit Red Wings equaled an NHL record with their 20th straight win at home, beating the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 Sunday night on the strength of Johan Franzen's tiebreaking goal early in the third period.
The league mark was set by the Boston Bruins during the 1929-30 season and matched by Philadelphia in 1976. Detroit can break the record with a win Tuesday night over the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena.
Philadelphia rookie Brayden Schenn had a career-high two goals, helping the Flyers take the first of two leads they couldn't keep against a team that hasn't lost at home since Nov. 3.
Detroit goalie Joey MacDonald overcame shaky clearing attempts that led to two goals and finished with 26 saves.
Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21 shots for the Flyers.
