Fans in the United States will be able to watch the Detroit Red Wings aim for their 14th consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena while facing off with their Central Division rival the Chicago Blackhawks on both NBCsports.com and NHL.com.
The 12:30 p.m. ET game is being featured as NBC's Game of the Week. The Blackhawks lead the Central Division with 57 points, but the Red Wings could leap them in the standings via a tiebreaker if they win in regulation.
Detroit is 16-2-1 this season at home and hasn't lost at The Joe since Nov. 3 against Calgary.
It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
