David Pasternak’s tally with less than 90 seconds remaining forced the extra period, which lasted only 35 seconds before Brad Marchand’s goal ended the game. Jimmy Howard stopped 29 shots in the loss. The Wings have lost four in a row, and 10 of their last 11 games, and host the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night.

MLB
The Detroit Tigers’ rebuild continues. Second baseman Ian Kinsler has been traded to the Los Angeles Angels. In exchange, the Tigers get minor league center fielder Troy Montgomery and pitcher Wilkel Hernandez. They are the Angels’ 20th and 24th-ranked prospects, according to MLBPipeline.com. The Angels will pay all of Kinsler’s 11-million dollar salary. Tigers general manager Al Avila hinted that they might have gotten a better deal from one of several other teams were also interested in Kinsler, but Kinsler blocked those deals because they were on the “no-trade” list in his contract.
