Wings records 700 dd

Like any sport, records help sell the game. Who won the most? Who lost the most? Who scored the most? It’s an easy way to answer who was the best (or worst!) at something and have a very significant data point for an argument. Records being broken even helps generate headlines and talking points.

Here are 10 noteworthy records currently held by the Detroit Red Wings.

10. Most games against one team

blackhawks logoOne surefire way to fuel a rivalry is to have teams play each other a lot, and the Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks have certainly done that. No two teams have faced each other more than the 727 games the Red Wings and Blackhawks have played. The Red Wings hold a sizable 364-266-84-13 (W-L-T-OL) advantage over their former division rivals.

With the 2013 realignment separating the two teams and leaving them with just two matchups per year, this record won’t stand for much longer; Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins (725) and Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (724) are set to overtake this record because these teams remain division rivals and will see each other more often in the coming seasons.
