Wings top Blues 3-1, earn 17th straight home win

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen scored in the second period, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Monday night for their 17th straight home win -- the NHL's longest single-season streak in 36 years.

The Red Wings' spurt is the fourth longest overall. Detroit (33-15-1) has won seven in a row and leads the NHL with 67 points.

Niklas Kronwall sealed the win with a power-play goal with 3:03 left.

St. Louis had won four straight, and lost in regulation for the first time since a Dec. 31 defeat at Detroit.

Jaroslav Halak, who had won a career-high seven in a row, made 25 saves.
