OTTAWA, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Johan Franzen, who just once this season had scored more than one goal in a game, produced five of them Wednesday in Detroit's wild 7-5 win over Ottawa.
It was the first five-goal game for a member of the Red Wings in 14 seasons. The Senators lost their eighth straight.
Franzen scored twice in the first period but Detroit trailed 3-2 after the first 20 minutes and the Red Wings were locked in a 4-4 tie heading into the final stanza.
Franzen put Detroit in front 30 seconds into the third period only to have Milan Michalek tie it 29 seconds later. Franzen delivered his fourth goal of the game on the power play with 12:50 to go and added an empty-netter with 34 seconds left.
He has 26 goals for the season after managing only 10 a year ago.
The hat trick was the first of Franzen's six-year career. His five goals came on 10 shots.
Jimmy Howard made 29 saves for the Red Wings.
Robin Lehner gave up four goals on 19 shots before being removed midway through the second period. The Ottawa losing streak is its longest since an 11-game skid 15 seasons ago.
