DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings couldn’t keep every long streak going.
After clinching a 23rd straight postseason appearance earlier in the week, the Red Wings lost a regular-season home game to the Carolina franchise for the first time since 1989, falling 2-1 to the Hurricanes on Friday night.
“You can’t be satisfied,” Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “We want to get to the next spot — see how high we can get in the standings before we start the playoffs.”
Cam Ward made 28 saves for Carolina. The Hurricanes hadn’t won a regular-season game at Detroit since Nov. 14, 1989, when they were still the Hartford Whalers. They won Game 1 of the 2002 Stanley Cup finals at Detroit, but that was their only victory of that series.
Elias Lindholm and Jiri Tlusty scored in the first period on Friday, and Carolina held on to hand the Red Wings their second regulation loss in eight games.

TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning are having success even without their starting goalie.
Kristers Gudlevskis made 36 saves to win his NHL debut, Eric Brewer scored two goals, and the Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Friday night.
Ondrej Palat also scored for the Lightning, who took a one-point lead over Montreal for second place in the Atlantic Division. A runner-up finish would give Tampa Bay home-ice advantage in its first-round playoff series with the Canadiens.
“We’d love to have home-ice,” Brewer said. “Clearly it’s something that you never want to use, but you’d love to have. The other thing is, you just want to play well going into the playoffs.”
Boone Jenner and David Savard had goals for Columbus. The playoff-bound Blue Jackets are tied with Philadelphia — which has one game at hand — for third place in the Metropolitan Division.

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500.

CHICAGO — They lost their star and they lost one of their best supporting players. The Chicago Bulls never lost their way, though.
Now, they have home-court advantage for at least one playoff series and the lead in the race for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.
D.J. Augustin scored 24 points, Taj Gibson added 17, and the Bulls rallied from 18 down to beat the Detroit Pistons 106-98 for their seventh straight win on Friday night.
Carlos Boozer finished with 18 points. Mike Dunleavy Jr. scored all of his 14 in the second half, and the Bulls kept their longest win streak of the season going.
They moved a game ahead of Atlantic Division leader Toronto for third in the East, with the Raptors losing to the New York Knicks. The Bulls also clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with Brooklyn falling to Atlanta.
“Right now, we’re just focused on basketball and making plays for each other, moving forward and getting better,” Gibson said. “That’s the only thing we’re focused on right now. Everything that’s gonna come with success is gonna come. But right now, we remember how nobody was on our bandwagon at the beginning of the year, how that felt.”
