Jarome Iginla scored twice on similar one-timers, and the Calgary Flames beat the slumping Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Thursday night.
Detroit has now lost six straight (0-5-1) after winning its first five of the season. The Red Wings held Calgary to 22 shots and managed only Danny Cleary's second-period goal off a strange bounce.

DETROIT -- Maybe all the Red Wings need is for Darren Helm to get his hair cut.
Helm's blond hair curls out from under his helmet and his facial hair is a bit scruffy these days.
"Change things up, feel fresh, feel better, feel good about yourself and come to the rink with a better attitude," Helm said after Friday's practice. "(Maybe) get a haircut, shave...
Lee Stempniak transmitted a check through Alexander Edler and the plexiglass to knock a crisp frosty brew out of the hands of one unlucky fan, who really should have waited for a break in the action to walk back to his front row seats, the entitled *******. And if you're with that guy behind you, then you're a Canucks fan too, so you deserved...
The Red Wings talked extensively about getting back to basics before losing, 4-1, on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena to Calgary, the latest in a string of one-goal performances. They talked about it again afterward, as neither Henrik Zetterberg nor Pavel Datsyuk, the team's superstar forwards, had a shot on net after 40 minutes and only combined for three in the third period.
The Calgary Flames were disappointed with their performance heading into a three-game road trip. Their next opponent has experienced that feeling often over the last week and a half.
The Detroit Red Wings will look to avoid their first six-game skid in four seasons by claiming their sixth consecutive win over the Flames on Thursday night.

Mired in their worst losing streak in four seasons, the Detroit Red Wings may get just what they need with a home game against the struggling Anaheim Ducks.
After all, facing the Ducks at Joe Louis Arena has almost always led to a win in the past.
The Red Wings try to avoid losing seven straight for the first time in two decades and continue their home dominance over Anaheim on...
Valtteri Filppula doesn't have the answer any more than his teammates do: How can they, as a group, and how can he, as a top-six forward, be in such a mess? Since starting 5-0, the Red Wings have tumbled down the standings and stumbled to score. They haven't won in two weeks, have one point during their past six games, all losses, and have six goals during that stretch.
Win or lose, you still have to support the home team. If you can't get to Joe Louis Arena tonight, check out the Red Wings-Ducks game on Fox Sports Detroit at 7. And, of course, it's "Hockey Night in Canada." The Bruins take on the Maple Leafs in Toronto at 7 on (CBC, Channel 9), and the red-hot Oilers host Phoenix at 10.
Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em Canucks hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the Canucks 5-1 win over the Flames. Roberto Luongo nearly got the shutout, and Alex Edler had a great game, but it was ruined by a late Alex Tanguay goal. Side note Jarome Iginla especially looks like a ghost, he was invisible on Tuesday night.
It has been a long time between victories for Hockeytown's finest, and the world has changed a bit in the meantime. (Though not as much as some people would have you believe.)
