Ted Kulfan The Detroit News Published 1:28 AM EDT Mar 26, 2019 So, where was this type of hockey for much of the season from the Red Wings? This was supposed to be a rugged five-game trip, going from East to West, criss-crossing the country and facing some difficult playoff teams. There's been a lot of travel, but it's the Wings who have been the best team most nights. The Wings (28-38-10) won the third game of this trip Monday, defeating the struggling San Jose Sharks, 3-2. Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou and Christoffer Ehn (shorthanded) scored goals, and goaltender Jonathan Bernier stopped 39 shots. BOX SCORE: Red Wings 3, Sharks 2 So, with the road trip ending Thursday in Buffalo (the Wings actually return home and will practice Wednesday), the Wings have thus far earned six of a possible eight points with victories over the Rangers, Golden Knights and Sharks. The victories over Vegas and San Jose, two quality playoff teams (who, incidentally, will likely face each … [Read more...] about Detroit Red Wings continue late push with impressive victory over San Jose Sharks

Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders posts his Rockies Mailbag every other week on Tuesdays during the season and once per month during the offseason. Pose a Rockies — or MLB — related question for the Rockies Mailbag. Hey Patrick! I’ve never loved Charlie Blackmon in center field. I’ve always seen him as sub-par defensively and would rather not see him burn himself out playing center in that huge outfield at Coors Field. I know Garrett Hampson is naturally an infielder but what are the odds they try him out in center and to utilize his crazy speed?— Blake Coulter, Littleton Blake, there certainly is a chance that Hampson gets a look in center field during spring training, but David Dahl also will get a shot, as well Ian Desmond, whom both general manager Jeff Bridich and manager Bud Black have said will move from first base to the outfield. Hampson remains in the running to replace DJ LeMahieu at second base, where he’ll be competing with Ryan … [Read more...] about Rockies Mailbag: Fans not impressed with lack of offseason moves from Bridich and Co.
By Russell Gold WSJ Sara Randazzo WSJ Rebecca Smith WSJ Tues., Jan. 15, 2019 PG&E Corp.’s plan to file for bankruptcy protection has enormous repercussions for everyone from the homeowners suing the utility for California wildfire damages to the companies that furnish it with green energy.

The more than 750 civil suits brought by thousands of homeowners and insurers suing PG&E over … [Read more...] about PG&E Bankruptcy Threatens Wildfire Suits, Green-Power Contracts

State fire officials say power lines coming into contact with trees sparked four Northern California wildfires last October. Mike Eliason/AP A federal judge in California dealt utility giant PG&E another setback Wednesday by proposing to restrict the beleaguered company from using unsafe power lines during the 2019 California fire season. U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco, who is overseeing the utility after a 2010 gas pipeline explosion, said the company should be required to "remove or trim all trees that could fall onto its power lines" and reinspect its grid.
