It was abig day in Detroit Sports yesterday. The Tigers hosted the first place Royals. The Red Wings played last home game of the regular season and The Detroit Lions finally made their pick.  Here is everything you need to know or may have missed yesterday.

Red Wings 5 Nashville 2 - The Red Wings stayed in the playoff hunt by beating Nashville during their home finale.  However they need the Blue Jackets to lose to clinch a play-off spot. So it will come down to the last regular season game when the Wings skate against the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Tiger 3 Royals 8 - It was a bad day for the Tigers. Justin Verlander has t leave the game with a blister and Darin Downs gives up a grand Slam in the 10th inning to split the series with the Tigers at Comerica Park.

Not sure if anyone mentioned it but the Detroit Lions participated in the 1st round of the 2013 NFL Draft yesterday.  The Lions pick was Ezekiel Ansah DE from BYU. Here are some links to the latest info on Ziggy.
