Feb. 28, 2012 at 10:20 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Niklas Kronwall racked up a three-point night with a goal and two assists Tuesday in the Detroit Red Wings' 5-2 win over Columbus.

After the Blue Jackets went up 2-1 early in the third period on a shorthanded, unassisted goal by Derek MacKenzie, the Red Wings erupted for four unanswered tallies to win going away.

Valtteri Filppula, Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen each notched a goal and an assist, while Jan Mursak also found the net as Detroit broke a three-game skid.

Joey MacDonald earned the triumph with 28 saves.

Rick Nash also scored for Columbus.

Curtis Sanford yielded five goals on 25 shots for the losers.
