DETROIT, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Curtis Joseph got the win in his first game against his old team Thursday night as rookie Henrik Zetterberg and Brett Hull each scored twice to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 7-2 rout of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After four seasons in Toronto, Joseph signed with Detroit in the offseason. He sat out the Red Wings' 2-1 victory at the Air Canada Centre on Nov. 16 but turned aside 27 shots in this one to help the defending Stanley Cup champions improve to 7


0-1 in their last eight games.

Zetterberg and Hull got their second goals of the night in an 8:22 span of the second period after the Maple Leafs closed within 3-2.

Kris Draper and rookie defenseman Dmitri Bykov tallied in the third to complete the scoring for Detroit, which moved four points ahead of second-place St. Louis in the Central Division.

It was the most lopsided loss of the season for Toronto.
