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 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.
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.
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".
Chicago Bears newcomers John Fox and Ryan Pace spoke to the media yesterday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. I'll break down their responses to questions regarding key Bears players and the new defensive scheme, as well as address which positions this Bears team needs to focus on in the upcoming draft. The Blackhawks lost to the Detroit Red Wings in a shootout last night in a thrilling game from start to finish. What are the biggest issues with these Hawks as they muddle through their 8 game homestand? Also, I'll give my take on the most influential trades from today's NBA Trade Deadline, and which playoff-bound teams got better. I've got open phone lines, so call in and give me your take!

The Red Wings have their 6-game winning streak snapped in Tampa, but they recover nicely with a big win over the Islanders at the Joe. They have off until Thursday when they play in the Rocky Mountains.
The Pistons finally win their first game since Brandon Jennings got injured for the rest of the season. Can they still make the playoffs?
Michigan and Michigan State clash at Breslin Center. Then they continue their Big Ten schedule.
Central Michigan keeps their undefeated streak at McGuirk Arena alive. Will they finish their entire 2014-2015 season undefeated at home?
The Tigers may have a full roster, but does that necesssarily mean they can't make any more moves, especially with the bullpen?
The Lions are the top favorites to (re-)sign Ndamukong Suh
Justin Verlander is struggling, Joe Nathan can't get anyone out, and the lineup has had its ups and downs. With their AL Central lead dwindling, are the Detroit Tigers in serious trouble of dropping from contention?
We'll touch on that, plus the upcoming NHL free-agency period. Should the Detroit Red Wings chase any high-priced talent? Which of their own guys do they need to bring back? And with the Stanley Cup Finals close to wrapping up, do the Wings have the pieces in place to win another title in the near future?
