NHL Stanley Cup Finals. Max Talbot scored two goals, including an empty-netter and Evgeni Malkin had three assists as Pittsburgh took the first step in their attempt to climb back in the series, beating Detroit 4-2. The Red Wings were up 2-1 when Kris Letang tied the game on a power play goal late in the first period and Sergei Gonchar notched the game-winner at 10:29 in the third period on another power play goal.

I believe if he is arrested seven more times, he gets a free footlong at Subway. Paul Baldwin (although not related by blood to the Hollywood Baldwins, he shares their spirit), a 49-year-old man from New Hampshire, was arrested for the 153rd time over the weekend for punching someone in the face, days after getting released from a 1-year stint in the pokey. Baldwin concedes he has had a long battle with alcohol that he tried to deal with during his time in jail. It looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Pauly. Best of luck to him. [Yahoo!/AP]
