NHL – Red Wings Fall Penguins
The Detroit Red Wings lost a 4-1 decision at Pittsburgh last night. Petr Mrazek gave up all four goals in the first two periods. Jimmy Howard made his first appearance in goal since suffering a groin injury a month ago, turning away all four shots he faced in the third period. The Wings host the Jets Saturday night. Faceoff is at 7:00 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3 WCCY.

NBA – Pistons Lose to Spurs
The Pistons fell behind early, and lost to the Spurs 104-87 last night. Detroit scored just 12 points in the first quarter, and never threatened. D.J. Augustin scored 22. Because of the all-star break, the Pistons are off until next Friday, when they host the Bulls.
