Did the Red Wings improve in terms of "taking care of the puck" when they played the Montreal Canadiens? Plus, they needed to keep doing so against the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars both on the road to start a 6-game road trip.
The Pistons continue their 5-game homestand with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards and finish it with the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks before visiting the Wizards.
The Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines clash, while the Central Michigan Chippewas look to keep their winning streak alive down the stretch in their 2014-2015 regular season.

The Red Wings finish their 6-game road trip 4-1-1 and then trade two prospects to the Dallas Stars for left-winger Erik Cole and a 3rd-rounder. Can they make another trade for a BETTER DEFENSEMAN for a change??? Lots of trade talks to come, too, as the trade deadline approaches. Plus they should waive defenseman Brendan Smith. I'll explain why.
The Pistons are now 2-3 after the Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince trades. The trades, however, are not the real problem. It's their DEFENSE! Also, some Greg Monroe offseason talk.
In college basketball, the Michigan Wolverines continue to struggle, and now the Michigan State Spartans take a turn for the worse losing two straight, including one to the Minnesota Golden Gophers at home. But the Central Michigan Chippewas continue rolling and may have a shot at an NCAA tournament spot.
The Lions cut running back Reggie Bush to save $1.7 million in cap space and thus make more possibility to re-sign and put a franchise tag on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Should they also try to keep wide receiver Calvin Johnson?
The Tigers start their 2015 Spring Training preseason Monday (tomorrow).
The Red Wings go on a 2-game southwest-border road trip and play the Colorado Avalanche and Phoenix Coyotes and try to keep up with the top of the Eastern Conference standings.
The Pistons continue their quest to win more games and reach a playoff berth without Brandon Jennings, as they play the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers, Denver Nuggets, and Minnesota Timberwolves.
How do the Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines fare against the Illinois Fighting Illini and Iowa Hawkeyes after their clash a week ago?
Did the Central Michigan Chippewas keep their undefeated streak at McGuirk Arena alive?
The Tigers lost Victor Martinez to a torn meniscus in his post-injured knee but not forever.

The Red Wings pick up only one point for giving up 8 goals in the last two games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Winnipeg Jets. They have to play better than that, of course, especially against the Eastern-Conference-leading Montreal Canadiens.
The Pistons have off until this Friday, which makes a very long NBA All-Star break for them. They welcome the Chicago Bulls into the Palace of Auburn Hills this Friday and then play the Washington Wizards in a matinee game at home Sunday to continue their 5-game homestand. The Pistons particularly need Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to improve by a large margin from his performance in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge the past Friday.
The Michigan State Spartans rebound nicely by picking up two wins, one of them which came in thrilling fashion at home the past Saturday (yesterday) against the Ohio State Buckeyes, while the Michigan Wolverines continue to struggle mightily and have off until Tuesday. The Central Michiigan Chippewas keep climbing up in the MAC Standings with wins over the Ohio Bobcats and the Buffalo Bulls.
I'll read you fans an article that shows another example of how the Tigers starting pitching rotation is NOT as concerning as some may think. It's about David Price feeling more refreshed.
Ohio State basketball has struggled at times this season, and now could potentially miss the NCAAs entirely if a few things don't go their way. Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska have also failed to meet expectations. Why? We chat with BT Powerhouse to catch up on all things Big Ten basketball, including why big teams haven't played as well, who makes the tournament, who can get things fixed in time, and more
The Red Wings continue their 6-game road trip in Edmonton against the Oilers, in Calgary against the Flames, and in Washington against the Capitals.
The Pistons take a Texas two-step and try to stay red hot coming back home to the Palace.
The Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Central Michigan Chippewas, Western Michigan Broncos, and Eastern Michigan Eagles continue college basketball conference play. An easy road ahead for the green and white and the maize and blue. U-M and MSU should be able to handle their opponents well.

How did the Lions fare against the Cowboys in Dallas in the NFC Wild Card Divisional Playoff Round to kick off the 2015 NFL Playoffs? If they won, I preview the next playoff road game. If not, I sum up their entire 2014 season in a nutshell.
Can the Red Wings and Pistons stay red hot through the new year, especially since the Pistons waived Josh Smith 13 days ago?
Did the Michigan State Spartans beat the Baylor Bears in the Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas?
The Big Ten and MAC Conference schedules gets underway in college basketball.
Did the Lions beat the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field for the first time since 1991 and clinch the NFC North Division Championship, home-field advantage, and a first-round bye?
Have the Red Wings or Pistons won a game yet lately?
How did the Central Michigan Chippewas fare against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl on Christmas Eve?
Is Jim Harbaugh coming to coach the Michigan Wolverines Football team? I also preview the Michigan State Spartans' Cotton Bowl game against the Baylor Bears on New Year's Day of 2015 at 12:30 PM EST.
More college basketball in the mitten.
Can the Tigers get more bullpen help than just Alex Wilson?
2 Detroit Lions players (Golden Tate III and Matthew Stafford) make the Pro Bowl. How did they do individually? And no, I won't waste time talking about the football deflations with the New England Patriots, Marshall Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks, or Super Bowl XLIX, which starts next week.
The Red Wings have won 5 in a row, but they should still cut ties with defenseman Jonathan Ericsson. He has played a heck of a lot worse than everyone else on this roster, and he's still a virus the way I see it. I explained it on my own website blog a few days ago. And no, I won't talk much about the NHL All-Star Game, especially considering the fact that there were no Red Wings players in it, although I would've preferred Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar to be there.
The Pistons lose Brandon Jennings, which is a devastating blow, but that is NOT their biggest problem. What IS their biggest problem is their defense, and that's been their biggest problem all season. They've given up over 100 points per game all season thus far. They need to stop worrying so much about Brandon Jennings and just play tougher defense.
Why the Spartans and Wolverines will both still make the NCAA Tournament in 2015. Michigan State is 13-7, and Michigan is 12-8. Neither of them will win either of the 2015 Big Ten titles (regular season or tournament)
The Tigers lose Max Scherzer to the Washington Nationals on a 7-year, $210 million contract, which very well decreases their chances of winning the World Series in 2015, but Justin Verlander is getting "better than ever".
