Misconduct: Where the Buffaslug Roams I was surprised several times during the Red Wings game on Friday against the Buffalo Sabres.

Re: Third-period Comeback Lifts Red Wings over Blackhawks I agree. Detroit must continue to dominate Chicago in hockey. Football is outta the question; baseball is iffy and so is basketball. The rivalry is back between the two cities with Ben going over there.
