As the Chicago Blackhawks continue their incredible run to start this season, it’s a great time to look back at some other incredible NHL streaks.
After reading these amazing achievements, you have to ask yourself, “Which is most likely to ever be broken?”
10. Consecutive goals, one team, one game – Detroit (15)
Here’s one unlikely to ever be replaced, since NHL rosters were in flux as a result of World War II. The Rangers were awful in 1943-44, finishing with a 6-39-5 record to bottom out the six-team NHL. Detroit was second – 25 points behind Montreal – and when the two met January 23, it got ugly. The Red Wings won the game 15-0 and set a record for most consecutive goals by one team in one game. It didn’t help that New York only showed up with 12 players. Rangers goalie Ken McAuley, who finished with a 6.24 goals-against average that season, still managed to make 43 saves in the game.
9. Home winning streak – Detroit (23)
