COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 28 (UPI) -- Vinny Prospal and Derek Dorsett scored first-period goals Wednesday and Allen York earned his first NHL win in a 4-2 victory for Columbus over Detroit.

The teams met Monday in Detroit with the Red Wings winning that one 7-2.

Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall scored the Detroit goals. Ty Conklin allowed the four Columbus scores on 31 shots.
