LET’S START WITH THE TIGERS…….WHO HAVE THEIR THREE GAME WINNING
STREAK ENDED LAST NIGHT………WITH AN 8 TO 4 LOSS TO THE A’S IN
OAKLAND. STARTER TARIK (TEAR-RICK) SKUBAL (SKOO-BULL) TAKES THE
LOSS, AFTER GIVING UP TWO RUNS, TWO HITS AND FOUR WALKS OVER FOUR
INNINGS………


WALKS - BY THE WAY - WERE A KEY REASON FOR THAT LOSS………AS FIVE
TIGERS’ PITCHERS WOULD COMBINE TO ALLOW A SEASON-HIGH 12
WALKS…….


JAKUB (JAK-OOB) VRANA’S (VER-RAN-UH'S) GOAL MIDWAY THROUGH THE
SECOND PERIOD TURNS OUT TO BE THE GAME-WINNER FOR THE RED
WINGS…….AS THEY DOWNED THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS LAST NIGHT, 4 TO
1. THAT WIN IS THE THIRD IN A ROW FOR THE RESURGENT WINGS……….


THE PISTONS WILL LOOK TO END A THREE-GAME LOSING STREAK………WHEN
THEY CLASH WITH THE OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER AT LITTLE CAESARS’
ARENA. THAT GAME WILL TIP-OFF AT 7………
