The Detroit Red Wings lost again the fans at Joe Louis Arena booed them off the ice.

It's hard to believe the team is just 11 games into the season and the 5-0 start seems so long ago.

The Calgary Flames are the latest team to add to the Red Wings' slump. They left Detroit with a 4-1 victory Thursday and the Red Wings are saddled with 0-5-1 winless streak. That's the longest losing streak for Detroit since 2008.

"It’s a huge embarrassment," Detroit right wing Danny Cleary said of the booing. "These fans have been great to us, loyal to us, supported us.

"Nothing has changed in regard to personnel. We’re just not doing it. We’re not scoring. We’re not playing super great defensively. We have to figure it out. I’ve never had to question this team’s work ethic. I don’t see that as a problem."
