Recap: Columbus vs. Detroit

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Jimmy Howard made 28 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Detroit Red Wings grabbed a 5-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco each posted a goal and an assist while Gustav Nyquist, Riley Sheahan and Darren Helm all scored for the Red Wings, who have won three of their last five.

"We needed this game after that tough loss to Montreal," said Jurco. "We talked about tightening up defensively and getting more pucks on net and things worked out well."

Sergei Bobrovsky was victimized for all five goals on 40 shots for the Blue Jackets, who had a two-game winning streak snapped.

"They did a good job of clogging up the neutral zone and denying us any space," said Columbus head coach Todd Richards. "I didn't make adjustments quickly enough to get things going for us."

The Red Wings got on the board halfway through the first period as Jonathan Ericsson threw a shot on net from the right point and Tatar was there to throw in the rebound from in front.

Columbus appeared to tie the game with 1:42 to play in the first as Boone Jenner appeared to get the puck into the net from in front, but replay showed that he kicked it in and the goal was disallowed.

Just 1:44 into the second while on the power play, the Red Wings made it a 2-0 game as Johan Franzen wristed a shot on net from the slot that saw Nyquist snap home the rebound from the right side for his ninth of the season.

The Red Wings made it a 3-0 game 4:49 into the third with another power-play goal as Jurco beat Bobrovsky to the short side with a wrister from the left circle for his first of the season.

A nice tic-tac-toe play was finished off by Sheahan in front of the net just over a minute later for a 4-0 lead.

Helm scored on a quick shot from the right circle with 1:01 to play to account for the final score.
