Red Wings

The Red Wings beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1 at Joe Louis Arena.   Dylan Larkin and Teemu Pulkkinen each had two goals, while Tyler Bertuzzi and Drew Miller also scored for the Wings.   Jimmy Howard played all 60 minutes in goal, turning aside 35 shots on net.  During last night's preseason games, the NHL tested their new overtime format which features three-on-three play for five sudden death minutes. If the game is not decided in the overtime, then the teams will go to a shootout to determine a winner.

Exhibition play continues tomorrow night as Detroit hosts the Boston Bruins.

Perles Home Robbed

14 bowl game rings have been stolen from the Meridian Township home of former Michigan State football coach George Perles. Perles told the Lansing State Journal the rings were stolen while he was attending the MSU-Oregon game September 12th. Some other jewelry was also stolen, but Perles believes the thieves were mostly targeting the rings. Perles coached MSU from 1983 to 1994.
