The Detroit Red Wings probably want to face the Montreal Canadiens every night. Though having one of the worst seasons in a very long time, the Red Wings made history last night.
The Red Wings are currently in their longest playoff drought since 1979, when they missed playing in the postseason in five straight seasons.
This year, it doesn’t look like the streak will end.
The Red Wings sit on the worst record in the league, having won only 15 games with a goal differential at nearly impressively -115.
However, the team has actually put up a new franchise record despite being the worst team in the league. And Montreal fans might nog be too happy about it.
The Red Wings faced the Canadiens for the fourth and final time last night. It looked like their Original Six rival would seal the deal, being up 2-0 after the first period.
The Red Wings cut the lead twice, being being down 3-1 going into the third. The Canadiens gave up three goals, with Andreas Athanasiou scoring two, and the Red Wings secured their 15th victory this season.
But they actually managed to make franchise history. For the first time in Red Wings history, they swept a series of at least four games against the Canadiens.
YES, THEY ACTUALLY MADE HISTORY.
“It feels good to beat them all four times, because they are a good team with a very good goalie. That’s the same team that has beaten us pretty badly the last couple of years, but we played four solid games against them this season.”, Dylan Larkin said.
The internet wasn’t wasting anytime not talking about Detroit after their win. And it was golden.
