DETROIT, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- Henrik Zetterberg's first-period goal set the tone Tuesday and the Detroit Red Wings won an NHL-record 21st straight home game in a 3-1 decision over Dallas.
Zetterberg scored on a power play 7:57 in the contest and the Red Wings never looked back.
Brad Stuart added a goal less than 2 minutes later and Jiri Hudler also scored as the Red Wings broke the previous mark for consecutive home wins held by the 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers and the 1929-30 Boston Bruins.
Detroit hasn't lost at Joe Louis Arena since a Nov. 3 setback against Calgary.
Joey MacDonald turned aside 20 shots and saw his shutout spoiled with just 32.8 seconds remaining.
