After a tough game last night in Boston, the Calgary Flames hope to build on their solid road trip record thus far (3-2-0 in five games) when they trek into Detroit to face the Red Wings.

The Red Wings are over 20 games above .500 - Calgary's "just" 10 games over - and are one of the league's more complete teams. It'll be a tough test for the visitors.

Their method of winning? Well, it was all-too-familiar if you've been following this team this season. The Flames beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 in a shootout in a game that was quite entertaining, particularly in its dramatic finish.
