Red Wings score victory in Calgary

The Detroit Red Wings have had a light schedule in recent days, but that schedule is picking up for their trip out to Western Canada. Things begun with a game against the Calgary Flames. This game was also notable for the return of Jimmy Howard between the pipes, although he wouldn't be that tested in this game.

After the first period, the Wings were behind 1-0 due to a Mark Giordano goal. However, in the second period a couple of role players stepped up for Detroit. Mike Modano tied the game with his second goal of the season, and then Justin Abdelkader took a pass from Pavel Datsyuk and scored his first of the season to make the game 2-1. That is where the game ended, with Detroit claiming the victory.

While the Wings managed 33 shots on Miikka Kiprusoff, the Flames only got 17 shots on Howard, who did what was asked of him. It was a good game for Detroit against a solid opponent on the road, and it is always good when a team doesn't have to rely on a few star players to do all the scoring. With a team as deep as Detroit's, that is an event we'll probably see on more than one occasion.
