Jarome Iginla had two goals and one assist Thursday night and the Calgary Flames beat Detroit, 4-1, to hand the Red Wings their first six-game losing streak in almost four years.
Lee Stempniak also scored for the Flames, while Miikka Kiprusoff had 28 saves to start a three-game road trip.
The Red Wings have won more games than any NHL franchise since the start of the 1997-98 season, so it's no surprise that six-game losing streaks are a rare occurrence.
This is their first since February 7-17, 2008 -- a season that ended with them winning the Stanley Cup.
Danny Cleary had Detroit's only goal on a power play in the second period and Jimmy Howard gave up three goals on 21 shots.
The Red Wings, who have been outscored 22-6 on their slide, dropped to 0-1-1 on a six-game homestand and had a five-game winning streak against Calgary snapped.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
