    Red Wings follow the plan and steal Game 1 from Bruins

    Stealing a game in Boston is what it was all about for the Red Wings, heading into a series against the President's Cup winners as almost an afterthought in the playoffs and big underdogs against the Bruins. One-third of the Wings' forwards were playing in their first playoff game, and their defense is young, too. But the Red Wings were undaunted.

  1. Schedule could prevent Tigers from attracting 3 million fans

    After this full house on Opening Day, Comerica Park's turnstiles have been a bit bogged down by an April schedule loaded with 16 home games and temperatures in the 30s and 40s. (David Coates / Detroit News) Baseball's schedule-maker appears to have issues with the 2014 Tigers. Heading into Friday evening's tussle against the Angels, on a day when the sun mercifully shined and temperatures pushed 60, the Tigers were in the middle of a 10-game homestand that was not exactly in the box office's interests.

  2. Pavel Datsyuk's late goal gives Red Wings 1-0 series lead against Bruins

    Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen celebrate Datsyuk's winning goal against the Boston Bruins with three minutes remaining in the third period at TD Garden Arena in Boston, April 18, 2014. It was the only goal of the game. (David Guralnick/The Detroit News)Datsyuk scored at 16 minutes 59 seconds of the third period to break a scoreless tie and send the Red Wings to a 1-0 series lead Friday night with a 1-0 victory.

  3. Drew Smyly, Tigers bullpen fare poorly in ugly loss to Angels

    Howie Kendrick's home run off Drew Smyly in the third inning gave the Angels a 4-0 lead. (Robin Buckson / Detroit News)After trailing the Los Angeles Angels 11-1, the Tigers scored five runs in the seventh not enough to make the final score close (it ended at 11-6), but more than enough to enliven those in the crowd who stayed beyond the sixth.

  4. Pistons hire search firm to help find new general manager

    Joe Dumars stepped down at Pistons president on Monday. (Clarence Tabb Jr / Detroit News)The Pistons have used consulting firms in the Tom Gores regime, and will use Korn Ferry in their search for a new general manager. Jed Hughes will be the point man in the search to replace Joe Dumars, who stepped down as president Monday after 14 years in the front office.
