The Calgary Flames winning streak came to a crashing halt with a 3-2 loss at the hands of the St. Louis Blues. Today the Flames try and rebound with a season sweep of the Detroit Red Wings on the last day of their 4 game road trip. Calgary is 2-1 on the trip having beaten Nashville and Dallas. The Flames are 2-8 in back to back games this season and Detroit provides a tough test. Calgary would love to finish this road trip better than .500 and a win today would secure that. The two teams last met on October 23 with the Flames winning 3-2 in OT. Here's a look at how each team matches up:

Calgary's last game was in St Louis against the Blues where the Flames have struggled as of late. That trend continued as the Flames saw their 7 game winning streak come to an end. Here's a look at the highlights.

The Red Wings come into Sunday night's tilt having dropped 3 in a row to the likes of New Jersey (OT), Buffalo and Vancouver (SO). Here's a look at the highlights of their last game against the Canucks.
