Wings set new standard for 100-point seasons
DETROIT – Despite a few rough patches in the last month, the Red Wings are back in business and sitting atop the NHL standings.

Sunday’s 4-0 win at Columbus propelled the Red Wings past Montreal for the NHL record for most consecutive 100-point seasons. Detroit now has nine straight century-mark seasons, which began in 1999-00.

The Canadiens won four Stanley Cups during their stretch of eight straight 100-points campaigns between 1974-75 and 1981-82.

“Obviously, to set an NHL record, it's phenomenal,” coach Mike Babcock told The Associated Press. “I've only been part of it for four years, (but I'm) proud of the fact that for four years we've been over the century mark.”

The Red Wings (46-15-9) were the first team to reach 100-points and clinch a playoff berth this season, their 18th straight and the league’s longest active streak. A few hours after the Wings claimed their stake, the San Jose Sharks reached both plateaus with a 1-0 win over Anaheim on Sunday.

Reaching the century mark isn’t an easy thing to do in the NHL. Since the Red Wings began their streak – nine seasons ago – 20 other teams have compiled at least one 100-point season. And only eight teams have done it more than twice – New Jersey (six), Philadelphia (five), Dallas (five), Ottawa (five), San Jose (four), and Toronto, Colorado and Vancouver (each three).

With their 18th consecutive post-season appearance, the Red Wings now rank seventh all-time among league franchises – one better than the Flyers, who reached the playoffs 17 straight years.

The Red Wings’ team record for most playoff seasons is 20, which was set from 1939-58. The Boston Bruins still hold the league mark of 29 straight seasons (1968-96).

If the Red Wings were to win their final 12 games, it would give them 125-points, which would ranked second in franchise history behind the 1995-96 campaign (131 points).
