Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings already own the NHL's single-season record for consecutive home victories. On Sunday, they set another record with a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks.

Henrik Zetterberg, Drew Miller and Darren Helm provided the goals for Detroit, which swept a six-game homestand to stretch its winning streak at Joe Louis Arena to 23 games.

The Red Wings broke the Boston Bruins' mark for the longest home winning streak over multiple seasons. The Bruins won their final 20 games of the 1929-30 season and opened the following campaign with a pair of home wins.

Joey MacDonald made 31 saves to win his sixth straight start in place of Jimmy Howard, who is recovering from a broken right index finger.

Antti Niemi stopped 25 shots for San Jose, which had won five straight against the Red Wings and four in a row in the Motor City.

The Sharks suffered their third consecutive loss to fall to 1-3-1 on a nine- game road trip.
