DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored shootout goals to give the Red Wings their 19th consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Ducks on Friday.
Detroit tied the 1970-71 Bruins for the second-longest home winning streak in NHL history. The 1975-76 Flyers and the 1929-30 Bruins won 20 in a row.
"I haven't even thought about that record until now," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock, whose team is 7-1 in shootouts this season. "So we might as well tie it with Philly coming in here (Sunday)."
The Ducks' Cam Fowler hit the post on a breakaway with 1:40 left in overtime and the teams playing three-on-three. A goal by Anaheim's Niklas Hagman 3:35 into the second was disallowed because of a penalty for goalie interference.
"We think we deserved a better fate," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "But when you go 0-for-7 on the power play, even if you get three, four good looks, you don't expect to win."
Game highlights: Ryan O'Reilly scored with 1.2 seconds left in overtime to lift the Avalanche past the Hurricanes 4-3. Carolina hasn't won in Denver since Feb. 9, 1996, when it was the Hartford Whalers. It is 0-6-2 with two ties since. … Nathan Gerbe scored the winner in the fifth round of the shootout as the host Sabres beat the Stars 3-2. Buffalo, 5-0-1 over its past six, tied it with 39 seconds left.
Around the league: Penguins center Jordan Staal planned to return today after missing 15 games with a left knee injury. Staal, who has 15 goals in 34 games, collided knee on knee with the Rangers' Mike Rupp on Jan. 6. … Blues center Andy McDonald, out with a concussion since Oct. 13, was expected to return Sunday. He said he felt fine after practice. … Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard, who has a league-high 32 wins, missed his fourth game because of a broken right index finger, sustained while making a save Feb. 2 against the Canucks. He hoped to start taking shots during practice today, then return in a few days.
