DETROIT (AP) — Henrik Zetterberg scored three goals, but it took a second assist from him to decisively break a tie with the pesky St. Louis Blues. The Detroit Red Wings won the game 5-3 behind Zetterberg's huge night. He scored the first two goals for the Wings. Detroit's Jimmy Howard made 23 saves for his 114th victory, tying Dominik Hasek for seventh place on the team's career list.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams' $700 million plan to renovate the Edward Jones Dome has gotten the OK from a panel of arbiters. They chose the Rams upgrade plan over a less costly one by the city's stadium authority. The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission has 30 days to accept or reject the offer. If not, the sides will go to a year-to-year agreement and the Rams could leave St. Louis in two years.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas women's basketball team has lost yet another starter to a torn ACL. Guard Natalie Knight will miss the season after sustaining the injury, leaving the Jayhawks with just nine available players. She hurt her knee Thursday in a win over Iowa State. She is the fourth Kansas starter in the past five seasons to tear an ACL.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Former World Series MVP David Freese is now the only player on the St. Louis Cardinals still headed toward arbitration. The team reached agreement yesterday with lefty bullpen specialist Marc Rzepczynski on a $1.1 million one-year contract. The 27-year-old was 1-3 with a 4.24 ERA last year.
