The Halifax Mooseheads will have a shot at team history on the road tonight. 

It's been nearly two full months since the last time the Mooseheads lost a game in regulation, having now gone 17 straight games with at least a point since late November. 

"Right now, I don't think the record matters all that much - at least that is the message from the coaching staff," said Garreth MacDonald, who does play-by-play for the Mooseheads on CityNews 95.7. "Overall I'd say the focus is on improving, trying to get a little better everyday and getting ready for what will hopefully be a long playoff run."

But despite that messaging, Halifax's current run of success has this year's squad being mentioned alongside one of the greatest teams to suit up in the city. 

The 2013 edition of the Halifax Mooseheads set the current record of 17 games with a point, and then went on to win the Memorial Cup.

"I think when you're in the conversation with that 2013 Memorial Cup winning Mooseheads team, it's got to be a little bit in the back of your mind," said MacDonald. "The idea that not only can you beat that record tonight, but if you look at the schedule coming up for the Mooseheads they really do have a chance to smash this record."

The Mooseheads are taking on the Sea Dogs on Friday night, the first of two straight games in Saint John. 

Puck-drop is at 7 p.m. and you can catch all the action live on CityNews 95.7.
