NHL: Detroit 2, Columbus 1

DETROIT, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Detroit's Jonas Gustavsson stopped 36-of-37 shots Tuesday, backstopping the Red Wings to a 2-1 decision over Columbus.

Gustavsson stood up to a Blue Jackets barrage in the first period, turning aside all 18 Columbus shots as Detroit grabbed a 1-0 lead on Daniel Alfredsson's first tally as a Red Wing.


After Cam Atkinson dented Gustavsson for a power-play equalizer in the second period, Detroit's Todd Bertuzzi struck less than 4 minutes later with the eventual game-winner.

Henrik Zetterberg assisted on both tallies for Detroit, which reeled off a third straight win.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves for the Blue Jackets.
