Can't fault a whole lot of what the Calgary Flames did Thursday night at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, but in the end, they fell 4-2 at the hands of the Red Wings. After a very good first period, the Flames were unable to follow up the same way in the final two frames. It was a decent 60 minute effort for Calgary, but Detroit's dynamic duo of Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk won the day.

The Calgary Flames will try to make it three straight wins tonight as they continue a three game road trip at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit (5:30 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). It's a place that used to be absolute death/kryptonite/guaranteed failure for the Flames, but lately, that hasn't been the case at all.

Not like it was an offensive showcase at the Bridgestone Arena (how many times has that place changed names?), but it's two points and consecutive points for the Calgary Flames. Rene Bourque scored 2:10 into overtime to supply the only offence in a 1-0 Calgary win as the Flames move above the .500 mark for the first time this season.

A busy Tuesday for the Calgary Flames as they get set for the Nashville Predators at the Bridgestone Arena (6 pm, Sportsnet Flames and The FAN 960). Rene Bourque returns to the lineup as the Flames go in search of their first consecutive wins of the season, and as mentioned previously on the site, the Flames have tinkered with their blueline as well.
