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.

If Brad Stuart decides to play closer to home and Nick Lidstrom decides to re****, two of their top 4 defensemen will have to be replaced.
from Ansar Khan of Mlive, The Detroit Red Wings haven’t started contract talks with Brad Stuart because the defenseman hasn’t decided where his future lies—in Detroit or closer to his home on the West Coast.
If it were strictly a hockey...
NBC Sports featured Detroit Red Wings defenseman and captain Nicklas Lidstrom on "NHL 36" tonight before the Red Wings laid down to the Montreal Canadiens. It was every bit of awesome as Red Wings fans anticipated, following Lidstrom and the Wings around for 36 hours during one of their latest back-to-backs.
The invasive cameras from two weeks ago must...
Nicklas Lidstrom's consecutive-games streak ended at 213 on Wednesday night when the Detroit Red Wings captain sat out against the Montreal Canadiens because of the flu.
The 41-year-old defenseman practiced with his teammates earlier Wednesday, but was unable to play in the NHL's last game before the All-Star break.

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings had to fight to extend their franchise record home winning streak to 17 games. Literally.
But in the process of their 3-1 victory, they showed their Central Division rival, the St. Louis Blues (29-13-6), that you have to be a little choosy as to when you fight.
The Wings (33-15-1) were not upset they trailed 1-0 late in the first period, they were...

There are two things I hate in this world. Blackhawks "fans" and Blues "fans" both for the simple fact that they know absolutely nothing about the sport they claim to be real fans of. Yet they spew unintelligible nonsense about the team and city I love.Puck drops at 7:30pm on NBCSN. Eddie...

The Red Wings fought, hit, skated and scored Monday night to secure themselves a 17th straight victory at home.
The Detroit Red Wings probably wish their final game before the All-Star break took place at home, where they have won 17 straight.
As expected, it wasn't "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." But Wednesday's "NHL 36" took a nice behind-the-scenes look at Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom. The show's cameras followed him for 36 hours last week, when the Wings had two games in two nights, including a trip to Dallas after the first game. We got glimpses of:

PHT: We’ve seen plenty from the Red Wings and Blues this season, but when they get together tonight in Detroit (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN) it’s about as big of a game between the two teams as we’ve seen in a long time.
1) Just finished writing a Red Wings book. Hereâs a leftover bit about Gordie Howe from former teammate Bryan âBugsyâ Watson.
âOne of the greatest goals I ever seen scored,â starts Bugsy. âGordie had this long piece of hair, he didnât have much up there but he had this one long piece that dangled down. We were in Toronto and Kent Douglas had...
