Weekly Wrap-Up Volume Eight...

Caption Mondays: Dan in Wyo tapped into Larry Murphy's favorite night of the year for this week's answer.

*sad face* I want a dollar hot dog...

Trivia Tuesdays: Clark got the answer again this week, although he was one win off on the home victories record. He's really giving Andy a run for his money.

This week's question: Everyone knows that the Wings hold the record for number of victories in a single season with 62 in 1995-96. However, they also hold the single-season records for home victories and road victories. Those two records were set in different years. How many home victories did they have in their record-setting year, and what year was it? How many road victories did they have the year they set that record, and what year was it?

The Answer: The Wings are tied with the Flyers for the record for most home victories in a season. Each team had 36 home wins. The Flyers accomplished this in the 1975-76 season, and the Wings in the 1995-96 season. Ten years later, Detroit set the road victories record with 31 in the 2005-06 season.


  1. D'oh! My database had the January 13, 1996, Wings/Caps game listed as a home game when it was a road game.

  2. What kind of database do you have? It sounds super fancy and high-tech.
