Rick Zombo and Sergei Fedorov scored goals eight seconds apart in the third period as Detroit beat Minnesota, 8-6, last night, keeping the Red Wings unbeaten at home and the North Stars winless on the road. Detroit took 47 shots against goalie Kari Takko, recalled Monday from Kalamazoo (Mich.), where he was 4-0-1 with a 2.00 goals-against average.

   Friday's men's basketball game between Temple and Detroit, part of the Gotham Classic at the Liacouras Center, was postponed because of bad weather. The game will be rescheduled.    Conditions in the Midwest combined with wind conditions in Philadelphia prevented Detroit from being able to safely travel to Philadelphia for the game, according to Rick Giles, president of the Gazelle Group, which runs the event.

Even though he didn't score any points, Sergei Fedorov was a plus for Detroit. Ask a teammate. "It was good to have him back," Detroit forward Vyacheslav Kozlov said after the Red Wings beat visiting Florida last night, 3-1. Fedorov ended a long contract dispute Thursday when the Red Wings matched a $38 million, six-year offer sheet from Carolina. "For a guy who hasn't played two-thirds of the season, he looked good," said forward Darren McCarty, who scored Detroit's last goal.

THERE'S a particular genre of film and photography that has become associated with Detroit in recent years: Called "rubble porn" or "ruin porn," it dwells on aestheticized images of urban decay and hopelessness that have become glib visual signifiers, not just of Detroit but of post-industrial America. "Detropia" trafficks in its share of those images, most strikingly the ghostly and tattered facade of a once-splendid skyscraper, teetering precariously on a blighted skyline. But in the hands of filmmakers Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing, "Detropia" largely sidesteps the cliches and facile false choices that have beset so many Detroit movies.

By Charles Lane Liberal economists have a ready response to conservatives who fret that U.S. debt might spiral out of control, à la Southern Europe: "America is not Greece. " It's true. Greece has much more public debt than does the United States, relative to economic output. Unlike Greece's euro-denominated obligations, U.S. debt is in U.S. dollars. The U.S. economy is far more competitive than Greece's tourism-and-tomatoes operation. Certain parts of the United States, however, are like Greece.

CHAUNCEY BILLUPS wanted to stay with the Detroit Pistons for the rest of his career. Now, the team that traded him away wants him back. Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars confirmed yesterday that Billups and the team have agreed to terms on a contract. Billups is getting a 2-year deal for $2.5 million each season. The first year is guaranteed. Billups, a five-time All-Star, turns 37 in September. "I never wanted to leave here. Everyone knows that," he said on Jan. 26, 2011, after making a flurry of three-pointers late in a game to help Denver win in Detroit.

Is Detroit's bankruptcy an omen or an anomaly? Will other American cities, such as Philadelphia, eventually go down the same dark financial road? Or is the Motor City's financial crisis an isolated event? Detroit's story is a cautionary tale. The city's economy soared with the advent of the automobile a century ago, making companies such as Ford and General Motors the Apple and Google of their day. The population ballooned, rising to nearly two million after World War II. A city that big requires lots of government services, including schools, police, fire, sanitation, and social services.

HOW DID IT come to this? The current debate on whether to rescue Detroit automakers reflects a deep animus toward that most American of enterprises, the auto companies. It feels almost like a nasty divorce. You know, you've either been through one, or had friends who have, and after a while, everything is exaggerated, every utterance is an assault, nothing makes sense. All that's left is hatred and distrust. Two cases in point: I was in a bar in New York City the other day when a man I just met was positive that Ford workers once upon a time sabotaged their own products as part of a labor dispute with the company.

What happened to the American dream of community, family, and financial success? Bernie Sanders provided his supporters one answer; Donald Trump countered with another. Lisa D'Amour's 2010 play Detroit offers a third. In Theater with a View's smoldering production, D'Amour's vision blends the ferociousness of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? with the existential angst of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot . The setting shows what's at stake: The large house of Sycamore Hill, an estate in Pottstown, suitable enough for the first-ring suburb specified by D'Amour's script, and the source of so much consternation during the recent recession.

Life in America today is arguably more anxiety-inducing than it's been for any generation since those that fought off the Depression and fascism. Even during the superheated political conflicts of the 1960s, people could get mad at each other, smash a window or a face, and still wind up with a decent-paying job and employer-provided health care. Tom Hayden and his activist generation didn't have to worry about getting trapped in a 1099 economy with no real hope of retirement savings outside of Social Security.

Mack Rice, 82, the composer of '60s hit "Mustang Sally" and cowriter of the Staple Singers' landmark "Respect Yourself," died Monday of complications from Alzheimer's disease at his home in Detroit. "Sir" Mack Rice was best known for writing "Mustang Sally," which he initially recorded but singer Wilson Pickett popularized. They had been in a group together called the Falcons, which recorded in Detroit. "When he wrote 'Mustang Sally' and he saw that royalty check, he started writing," his wife, Laura Rice, said.

Rick MacLeish, the smooth-skating center who scored the goal that gave the Flyers their first Stanley Cup championship in 1974, is battling multiple medical problems in a Philadelphia hospital. MacLeish, 66, has been hospitalized for six weeks. "We deeply appreciate all the support that's been given to our dad," said Brianna MacLeish, one of Rick's two daughters. "At this time, we want to spend time with our dad, and the family asks for our privacy. " Brianna MacLeish did not want to specify her father's medical problems.

The Flyers haven't made things easy on themselves. Though they still control their destiny in the Eastern Conference wild-card race, their three straight losses have left them with little margin for error - unless they get help from other teams. "It's in our hands," defenseman Mark Streit said after the Flyers' awful first period came back to haunt them in a 4-3 overtime loss Thursday to visiting Toronto, the NHL's worst team. The Flyers have two regular-season games left: Saturday afternoon against surging arch-rival Pittsburgh at the Wells Fargo Center and Sunday night in Brooklyn against the Islanders.

 Less than 24 hours after a disheartening showdown defeat in Detroit, the Flyers lost to the NHL's worst team Thursday and damaged their playoff hopes.  Toronto 4, Flyers 3.  In overtime.  Jake Gardiner scored on a power-play blast with 2 minutes, 9 seconds left to give the Maple Leafs the win.  The Flyers suffered their third straight loss and their playoff chances took a hit - after the team entered the week in the driver's seat.  The Flyers had a second-period goal negated because of incidental contact, ruled because a sliding Claude Giroux brushed into goalie Jonathan Bernier.

DETROIT - The Flyers' playoff charge was delayed Wednesday in Detroit, and they will have to regroup if they are going to earn an Eastern Conference playoff spot. Red Wings 3, Flyers 0. In the most important game of the season for both teams, the Flyers started somewhat flat, allowed a bizarre first goal and never recovered before a frenzied crowd at Joe Louis Arena. Jimmy Howard made 30 saves to register his first shutout since opening night against Toronto on Oct 9. "Maybe we could have gotten in his face a little more, tried to take his eyes away, but he made a lot of good saves," defenseman Mark Streit said.

A day after Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Andrew MacDonald would not play Wednesday in a crucial game in Detroit, there could now be a change of heart. MacDonald, who was slammed into the boards during a 6-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, participated fully during a brief practice Tuesday at the Skate Zone. Even though MacDonald is still listed as day to day with an upper-body injury, he will make the trip to Detroit. "A decision will be made [Wednesday]

The Flyers, their playoff drive interrupted by sizzling Pittsburgh on Sunday,  will put a one-sided loss behind them as they prepare for their most important game of the season: Wednesday's showdown in Motown. The Flyers will play in Detroit, a team they have beaten in two close decisions this season. They will try to bounce back from Sunday's 6-2 shellacking in Pittsburgh, which was just their fourth regulation loss in their last 19 games. "We've forgotten quick about our losses, and to an extent, our wins," said right winger Wayne Simmonds, whose team's playoff fate will be determined in its final four games.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - If you can't be bigger, be faster. If you can't be stronger, be more athletic. Those were the thoughts of the 76ers on Wednesday as they headed to Detroit to face beastly center Andre Drummond without the services of Jahlil Okafor, who was home in Philadelphia recovering from the flu. And that scheme directly fell on the thin shoulders of Nerlens Noel. So Noel ran the floor endlessly and beat the 280-pound Drummond to the rim. He used his quickness to be on the receiving end of the now-expected lob pass from Ish Smith numerous times.
