ROUNDUP

Win Streak at Nine for Red Wings

November 02, 2005|From Associated Press

Despite missing their top defenseman and then losing their starting goalie, the Detroit Red Wings found a way to get their longest winning streak in nearly 10 years.

Chris Osgood made 23 saves after replacing the injured Manny Legace, and the Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-1, Tuesday night at Detroit for their ninth victory in a row.

Detroit has its longest winning streak since 1995-96, when it had two nine-game streaks.

Detroit was without defenseman Mathieu Schneider, a last-minute scratch because of a sore groin, and then Legace left the game because of a slight knee sprain with 3:23 remaining in the first period after Chicago's Matthew Barnaby fell on him. Legace was expected to undergo precautionary X-rays today.
