The Malik Report

Well this is crappy news with a significant silver lining, per the Detroit News's Ted Kulfan:
Losing Game 5 Saturday was bad enough, but forward Justin Abdelkader received more bad news afterward. His parents' house in Norton Shores, Mich., the house Abdelkader grew up in, suffered damage in an electrical fire Saturday night.
The damage was contained to the detached garage as Abdelkader's parents arrived home that evening to see smoke billowing out of the garage.
Had they arrived later, or had they gone down to Chicago to watch Game 5, which they had been thinking about, the entire incident could have been a lot worse.
"If no one had been home, it could have been burned down in five to six hours," said Abdelkader, who said four fire trucks arrived on the scene and tore down the side of the garage to get to the source of the fire."
