Students of history will tell you that great men aren't merely self-made icons who singlehandedly clawed their way to power and influence through force of will alone. Martin Luther's reformation grew out of the Renaissance and the corruption of the church. The Weimer Republic was constructed in the rubble of World War I and it gave rise to Adolph Hitler. Numerous, interdependent factors always precede and instruct revolution.

Well, I'll leave the Miikka Kiprusoff stuff for later on, because that will most likely dominate the comments section tonight, but the Calgary Flames really did play a strong hockey game but ended up falling 5-4 in a shootout to the Detroit Red Wings. It's another heartbreaker to the Wings, and a tough loss to take, but it also yielded some positives; specifically Calgary's play at 5-on-5.

So Detroit's in town and you know what that means: listening to everyone talk about how great they are.

...the Calgary Flames only play the Red Wings one more time this season: tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome (7 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960). On the less bright side, the Flames have lost all three of their previous encounters with the Red Wings this season, and they're trying to snap a two game losing skid prior to a four game Eastern Conference road trip.
