LANSING, MI – State environmental regulators have given Consumers Energy permission to build a controversial new coal-fired power plant in Michigan's Thumb region. The new plant will be cleaner-burning than existing plants. But environmental groups say the state should not be approving any new coal plants.
COLUMBUS, OH – Fredrik Modin backhanded in a rebound of his own shot 3:12 into overtime to give Columbus a 1-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night, ending the Blue Jackets' franchise-tying nine-game winless streak.
Steve Mason had 34 saves for his second shutout of the year.
Modin carried the puck into the offensive zone and past defenseman Brett Lebda to flick a shot at Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard. He stopped the shot, but Modin continued to skate and was able to backhand a shot past a diving Lebda that went behind Howard.
