ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) - The Detroit Red Wings can match a

with a victory over the Minnesota Wild.
Detroit last won eight consecutive games away from home from
February 4-March 9, 2002.
The Red Wings, who already have clinched a playoff berth, are
coming off Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago. Pavel Datsyuk
tied it with 46 seconds left in regulation before Chris Osgood
allowed the game-winner 1:29 into overtime.
Osgood finished with 31 saves and captain Steve Yzerman also
tallied for Detroit, which had won nine of its last 11 games.
Minnesota is coming off Friday's 2-1 triumph vs. Vancouver as
Mikko Koivu netted the only goal of the shootout. Manny
Fernandez made 28 saves and denied all three attempts in the
bonus format as the Wild won for the second time in three games
despite scoring three goals or fewer for the eighth straight
