Anaheim Ducks having record-setting season at home

When the Anaheim Ducks beat the Detroit Red Wings 1-0 at home on Sunday they moved one game closer to the record books. The Ducks are chasing the Philadelphia Flyers who own the record of 26 straight home games without a loss. The Flyers set the record during the 1979-80 season.

So far this season playing at the Honda Center, the Ducks are undefeated at 19-0-2. Goalie Jonas Hiller has been the man in the net for most of those victories. He recently spoke about his play during the streak on NHL.com.

“My save percentage and goals-against average isn’t the best over this stretch, but it’s the wins that count,” said goalie Jonas Hiller, winner of a club-record 14 straight decisions. “That’s what keeps you happy. It’s great to get a game with no goals against, but in the end, it’s the win that I enjoy most.”

Hiller kept 22 shots out of the net on Sunday against the Red Wings. His 14-game win streak is tied for the second-longest mark in NHL History.

For the Ducks, the 19-game winning streak includes two shoot-out victories, four overtime wins and three shutouts. The team’s next home game is Wednesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.
