    Bruins blister Red Wings, knot series as it heads to Detroit

    The Red Wings earned a split in these first two games, which is probably what they would have wanted heading into this Eastern Conference playoff series. But the momentum is squarely back with the Bruins.

  1. Rick Porcello turns tables on Angels, Tigers prevail

    Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello works in the first inning Sunday against the Angels. (Robin Buckson / Detroit News)After two miserable starts against the Angels last season, Rick Porcello was looking for a turnaround. He gave up 16 earned runs on 19 hits in five total innings last season.

  2. Tigers release shortstop Alex Gonzalez, promote Danny Worth from Toledo

    Alex Gonzalez was hitting just .167 for the Tigers this season and had already made three errors. (Elizabeth Conley / Detroit News)The injury to Jose Iglesias continues to take its toll on the Tigers. Following the season-ending injury to the starting shortstop in the offseason, the Tigers have struggled to fill the position.

  3. Why do you care how much money Matthew Stafford makes?

    Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will be one of the highest-paid athletes in the world this season. (Daniel Mears / Detroit News) Stafford ranked sixth among the magazine's list of the 50 top-paid athletes in the world. His listed salary of $31.5 million was topped only by Floyd Mayweather ($73.5 million), Cristiano Ronaldo ($50.176 million), Lionel Messi ($50.05 million), Aaron Rodgers ($40 million) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic ($35.06 million).

  4. Dan Dierdorf and Jim Brandstatter weigh in on their history at Michigan

    Jim Brandstatter, left, and Dan Dierdorf, here flanking ex-Michigan coach Lloyd Carr at Michigan Stadium, will be reunited as teammates, this time on the radio instead of the field. (John T. Greilick / Detroit News)The stories the two share aren't about the grueling nature of playing in the trenches or the demands of their coach, Bo Schembechler. No, they talk about their weight and how they outsmarted Schembechler and their position coach, Jerry Hanlon.
