The Game Rush: Flames vs. Red Wings
An in-depth look at the Flames-Red Wings game
40-year old Red Wing centre, Mike Modano, tied things up for the Wings as he raced into the Flames zone and fired his well-known wrist shot over the glove of Kiprusoff from the middle of the left circle. Modano's second goal of the season came just 1:54 into the second frame.
Justin Abdelkader picked up the Wings go-ahead goal at the 12:05 mark of the second period. With a nice feed from Pavel Datsyuk just over the blueline, Abdelkader threw a wrist shot just over Kiprusoff's glove side for the 2-1 lead.
The Wings kept coming at the Flames into the third period as they tripled the Flames 12-4 on the shot clock. 33-17 was the shot tally in favour of the Wings after 60 minutes of play.
The Flames give up their fourth straight lead as they drop a 2-1 decision to the Detroit Red Wings.
