Bruins beat Red Wings 3-2 in OT, up 3-1 in series

DETROIT (AP) - Jarome Iginla scored with 6:28 left in overtime, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night in Game 4 of their first-round series.

The Presidents' Trophy-winning and defending Eastern Conference champions can advance with a win against Detroit on Saturday afternoon at home.

Detroit took a 2-0 lead early in the second period after Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall each had a goal and an assist.

Torey Krug scored midway through the second period to pull the Bruins within a goal. Milan Lucic tied it at 2 early in the third period.

Boston's Tuukka Rask stopped 35 shots. Detroit's Jonas Gustavsson made 37 saves in a surprise start Thursday night, filling in for Jimmy Howard, who was out with the flu.


Cabrera, Scherzer lead Tigers over White Sox 7-4

DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera drove in three runs, Max Scherzer struck out 10 and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 Thursday.

Cabrera hit a pair of two-out singles for his RBIs.

Scherzer allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings. The reigning AL Cy Young winner was pulled with a high pitch count.

Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his fourth save in six tries. He got the final two outs on a strikeout where Jose Abreu was called for interfering with catcher Bryan Holaday's throw to second base on a stolen-base attempt.

Jose Quintana allowed three runs in six innings.


Lions like Caldwell's cool, calm, collected style

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Coach Jim Caldwell has already made his mark as the new leader of the Detroit Lions.

Caldwell seems cool, calm and collected. So far, players like what they have seen and heard from him.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford described Caldwell as "confident and level-headed," after a three-day voluntary minicamp ended on Thursday. Stafford says Caldwell has earned the team's respect in part because he has coached in multiple Super Bowls.

Caldwell lost a Super Bowl as Indianapolis' head coach. He helped the Colts and Baltimore Ravens win NFL titles as an assistant coach.

The Lions hired Caldwell in January after they fired coach Jim Schwartz with a 29-51 record over five seasons.
