It's Henrik Time tonight in Columbus as the Calgary Flames finish off a three game road trip in the Ohio state capitol (5 pm, Sportsnet West and The FAN 960). It's the much anticipated debut of Flames backup goaltender Henrik Karlsson, or as some of started calling him, The Calgary Tower. Great nickname...and let's hope the team plays better in front of him than they have in front of past backup goalies.

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. Nash, in some ways, reminds me of a young Jarome Iginla when the latter was finding shouldering the load on a team that found it tough to compete on a nigh-to-night basis. Huselius is just a player I've always liked.

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.

That's two wins in a row now, and the team, while not necessarily spectacular, has at least played admirably. But there are a lot of things you could call Edmonton and Nashville, and "as good as the Red Wings" isn't one of 'em.
