DETROIT — Canes coach Paul Maurice now knows all the pertinent dates and numbers.
He's been told the Hurricanes franchise has not won a regular-season game against the Detroit Red Wings in Joe Louis Arena since Nov. 14, 1989. The score of that game was 3-0 (Ron Francis says he was told he had the winning goal but doesn't remember it or the game) and the franchise is 0-12-1-1 since in regular-season games against the Wings at the Joe.
Of more pressing concern to Maurice and the Canes, though, is a more recent score: 6-0. That was the final in the Wings' last game, a road loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday. The Wings had a season-low 16 shots on goal.
