I became something of a closet Blue Jackets fan a couple of years ago when Rick Nash emerged and Kristian Huselius was signed by the club.

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.
