Marijuana is a gateway PED: "Several fighters who competed on the UFC 143 card were subjected to postfight drug and steroid tests. 'All results received thus far have been negative, except Mr. Diaz [who] tested positive for marijuana metabolites,' Kizer said in a statement. 'A complaint for disciplinary action against Mr. Diaz has been filed.' UFC president Dana White planned to meet with Condit on Friday in hopes of working out details for a rematch. But that meeting will likely be canceled, now that Diaz faces a possible suspension. 'I am beyond disappointed that [Diaz] tested positive for marijuana,' White said. 'It is now in the hands of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.' With a rematch against Diaz off the table, White told there is no plan to have Condit put his interim title on the line." [ESPN]


Hockey!: The Detroit Red Wings' shootout prowess saved their home winning streak after they were outplayed for 65 minutes. Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored shootout goals to give Detroit its 19th consecutive home victory, 2-1 over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night. The Red Wings tied the 1970-71 Boston Bruins for the second-longest home streak in NHL history. The 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers and the 1929-30 Bruins won 20 consecutive games at home. Detroit can tie the record against Philadelphia when the Flyers visit to Joe Louis Arena on Sunday night. 'They seem to be real comfortable here and find a way. It's fun that we're going to have Philly in here,' Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. 'We'll have a good skate tomorrow and (try to) tie that record. I haven't even thought about that record until now, so we might as well tie it, with Philly coming in here.' Detroit is 7-1 in shootouts this season. Jakub Kindl scored for Detroit. Joey MacDonald made 29 saves in regulation and overtime. The Red Wings killed off all seven Anaheim power plays. 'They played well, really, really well. They held onto the puck and they were strong down low,' Bertuzzi said. 'Just one of those grinding games and then, obviously, with the officiating and all of the penalties it didn't really roll. Obviously, we're pretty excited that we got the win.'" [AP]
