DETROIT - For most of the last three decades, the Joe Louis Arena has been the Flyers' house of horrors. On Sunday night, however, they overcame an early five-minute penalty, a controversial Detroit goal, and a third-period deficit as they grittily recorded a rare win in the noisy old building. In a shootout, no less. Jake Voracek's shootout goal gave the Flyers a hard-earned 2-1 win over the Red Wings. Including the postseason, it was just the Flyers' third win at The Joe in 24 games (3-19-2)

The young red panda that died unexpectedly at the Elmwood Park Zoo last month had a brain disease likely caused by a parasite. A brain biopsy determined that Clinger, who was just a year and a half old, died of meningoencephalitis, the zoo said Friday. The disease causes inflammation of the brain and Clinger, who died Nov. 29, was likely infected by a parasite. His mother also died of encephalitis that was brought on by a parasite. Clinger and his brothers all received preventative treatment, but the zoo said the disease is hard to detect without a brain biopsy.

For fashionistas like socialite Olivia Palermo, actress Teyonah Parris, and even little ol' me, a Jeffrey Levinson handbag is a vibrant-hued beaut that holds lipstick, keys, an iPhone 6, and still fits in the palm of your hand. But the eponymously named red-carpet-worthy jewel also is a sculpted piece of aerodynamic art. Levinson - who lives in Wynnewood and honed his design knowledge in the luxury-automobile industry - fashions the clutches from two aerospace-grade, hand-cut aluminum shells snugly held together with a specially designed frame.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 13 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Browns. Dalton tossed three TDs with no interceptions when these teams faced off in Week 9, and was nearly as sharp last week against a solid Rams secondary. Meanwhile, Cleveland's pass defense is one of the softest in the league. Time to load the Red Rifle. Javorius Allen, RB, Ravens at Dolphins. Allen got his feet wet as a starter on Monday night and acquitted himself well.

The same morning the Phillies introduced Matt Klentak as their new general manager, the man he replaced officially landed his next job. The Boston Red Sox confirmed Monday that Ruben Amaro Jr. is their new first-base coach. The career move is a unique one for Amaro, who had been a prominent member of the Phillies front office since 1999, the year after his final season as a player. He has never coached at any level of professional baseball. In addition to his duties as first-base coach, Amaro, 50, will be Boston's outfielder instructor and help instruct baserunning.

Once a week in the name of poetry, Hila Ratzabi opens her living room to strangers. They lounge, snug on the red wraparound sofa in her West Philadelphia home, and discuss, over wine and homemade vegetarian food, how to become better poets. Ratzabi, 34, is their teacher. A poet and freelance editor, Ratzabi has held the biannual Red Sofa Salon and Poetry Workshop in her living room since 2013. This fall, a small group gathers in her home on Sundays from noon to 2:30 p.m. to read and discuss published poetry, participate in writing exercises, and critique one another's work.

Philadelphia police arrested one man in a violent Kensington home invasion and abduction Tuesday morning - and are asking for the public's help in finding another suspect. Edwin Velez, 28, of Frankford - who was in custody facing charges of robbery, kidnapping, and unlawful restraint - wasn't cooperating with investigators, police said. Just before 2:30 a.m., police said, Velez and another man broke into a home on the 3100 block of F Street. Both were wearing masks and they were armed with a hammer and a knife.

Coming off a five-day layoff, the Flyers will try to slow down the NHL's highest-scoring team, Dallas, when they meet Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center. The Stars (4-1), led by linemates Jamie Benn and Tyler Sequin, are averaging a league-best 3.80 goals per game. Seguin centers left winger Benn and right winger Patrick Sharp, a former Flyer who won three Stanley Cups with Chicago. "It's probably the best offensive line in the league," Flyers defenseman Mark Streit said after Monday's practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.
