For all those for argue this record isn't legit.
First of all, was it harder for the 1975-76 Flyers to set this record? Yes, I'll admit to that. However, here are a few reasons why the Red Wings record should not be overlooked/dismissed.
1.) Although the Red Wings have the OT/Shootout, they still had to win those games, which is not necessarily an easy thing to do. Its not like those games were just handed to them. 2.) The Wings did this in the Salary Cap era, Philly did not, 3.) They won the last 4 games with their 3rd string tender (JOEY!) 4.) Its a lot harder to do when your flying back and fourth between the east and west coast.
All in all, haters gonna hate, but no matter what you say the Wings are in the record books. GO WINGS!!!!!
