Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings again top our subjective rankings of the NHL's 30 teams. Here's a look at how everyone else fared, complete with a New Year's wish for each team heading into 2008:
1. Detroit Red Wings. May goalies Chris Osgood and Dominik Hasek continue playing like young men.
2. Ottawa Senators. May Alfredsson, Heatley and Spezza show up when the games matter most.
3. Dallas Stars. May Sergei Zubov finally get some recognition.
4. Colorado Avalanche. May good health return to captain Joe Sakic.
5. Vancouver Canucks. May Vezina Trophy voters watch Roberto Luongo play.
6. New Jersey Devils. May Brent Sutter last longer than other recent head coaches in Jersey.
7. Minnesota Wild. May Marian Gaborik remain in the lineup.
8. Calgary Flames. May road games continue to be so kind.
9. Anaheim Ducks. May Scott Niedermayer play like a Conn Smythe winner.
10. San Jose Sharks. May Evgeni Nabokov start every game this season - how cool would that be?

24. Columbus Blue Jackets. May their fans finally get a taste of playoff hockey.
The jackets have a long way to go..

Calgary Flames - Columbus Blue Jackets

The Calgary Flames tied a National Hockey League record Tuesday by defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 at Nationwide Arena.
In completing a 6-0 tour of six American cities, the Flames are the third club to win six consecutive games on the same road trip.
The other clubs with six-win road trips are the 1971-72 Boston Bruins and the 1982-83 Philadelphia Flyers. The 2001-02 Red Wings won six straight road contests without any intervening home dates, but the run was interrupted by the Olympic break.Don't you just love it when the Jackets help another team make a record lol
