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.
