DETROIT, April 7 (UPI) -- Tomas Holmstrom started a three-goal outburst in a 76-second span of the third period Wednesday, rallying the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 victory over Columbus.

Holmstrom's power-play goal was followed by scores from Nicklas Lidstrom and Daniel Cleary, giving the Red Wings a 4-2 advantage.

Jimmy Howard made 21 saves for Detroit, which ended a two-game skid and jumped past Los Angeles into sixth place in the Western Conference.
