News@noon: 2 shootings and a battle brewing

The Detroit News

Today is Monday. March 28, 2016, and parents Jeffrey and Laurene Sikorski faced an unimaginably tough situation today: Watching their teen daughter, Roksana, head off to prison for 10-20 years for trying to kill her family, but also defending  her to the judge. Read the story and then let us know in the comments what you think: If you were in this situation, would you ask the judge for leniency?

Jeffrey and Laurene Sikorski don’t believe their daughter intended to hurt them during an attack nearly two years ago in their home.

Here's what else is making news today:

A battle is brewing

Experience prevailed, as the Red Wings took the  series 4-2, claiming their fourth Stanley Cup in 11 years.  Henrik Zetterberg won the Conn Smythe Trophy and Chris  Osgood had a sparkling .930 save percentage in the  playoffs.  Above, Nicklas Lidstrom  hands the cup to Dallas Drake.
