The Detroit Red Wings' up-and-down season continues tonight with a home game against the Calgary Flames.

Coming off of back-to-back wins over the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks over the weekend, Detroit's season has gone about as well as it could go, keeping in mind the 0-5-1 stretch that Detroit suffered through after starting the season with five consecutive wins.
