DETROIT - Red Wings defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom has played in his 1,550th game, the most by an NHL player who spent his entire career with one team.

Lidstrom broke the mark Sunday night against the Philadelphia Flyers and was given a standing ovation when the feat was announced during the first period.

Former Red Wings great Alex Delvecchio played 1,549 games, spending his entire career with Detroit's franchise from the 1950-51 season to 1973-74.

Gordie Howe played in a club-record 1,687 games for Detroit, but ended his NHL career with the Hartford Whalers.

The 41-year-old Lidstrom has won four Stanley Cups and the Norris Trophy seven times.
