Last September, we told you about Darren McCarty's rather interesting career move: Working for American Jewelry and Loan in Detroit, a pawnshop featured on the truTV series "Hardcore Pawn." On Tuesday night's episode, we get to see how the former Detroit Red Wings grinder got the gig, but not before we see Darren McCarty try to pawn a 14-foot taxidermied alligator for cash and store credit: "Hardcore Pawn" is shown at 9 p.m. ET on truTV, so please do check those local listings. Tune in next week when Chris Chelios attempts to pawn the hide of an Ankylosaurus.

Wings outfight Blues, earn 17th straight home win

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings had to fight to extend their franchise record home winning streak to 17 games. Literally.
