Cleary sparks Wings\' 4-1 win
DETROIT -- The Red Wings might have struggled early, but they are returning to their dominating form.

Daniel Cleary scored two goals and the Wings scored three goals in just under seven minutes in the second period of a 4-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The defending Presidents' Trophy winners, who also got goals from Henrik Zetterberg and Mikael Samuelsson, have won six consecutive games after stumbling to a 3-4-1 start.

Cleary gave Detroit a 1-0 lead with 2:17 left in the first period when he poked the puck past Columbus goaltender Pascal Leclaire after a scramble in front of the net.

His second tally gave Detroit a 3-1 lead with 14:04 left in the second period. Cleary streaked in on a breakaway and backhanded the puck past Leclaire.

Leclaire, who stopped 23-of-27 shots, was lifted after two periods.

Ron Hainsey scored the lone goal for Columbus, which went 1-for-9 on the power play.

Dominik Hasek recorded 16 stops for the Wings, who were blanked in seven opportunities with the extra skater.
