Blue Jackets outlast Detroit, 4-3
The Blue Jackets stormed to a 3-0 lead in the first period against the Red Wings on Monday, and held on for a 4-3 victory at Nationwide Arena.

The Blue Jackets chased Detroit goalie Dominik Hasek, scoring shorthanded, at even-strength and on the power-play in the first period. Hasek made nine saves on 12 shots.

Jason Chimera scored an unassisted, shorthanded goal at 8:30, giving the Blue Jackets a 1-0 lead. Columbus built a 2-0 edge when 84 seconds later, Rick Nash beat Hasek with his 12th goal of the season.

Former Red Wings' all-star Sergei Fedorov added a power-play tally at 18:38 of the first for a 3-0 lead. Fedorov also scored in the third and had an assist. David Vyborny added three assists.

Chris Osgood replaced Hasek at the start of the second period. Osgood, who had a hand injury, which held him out of the line-up since Nov. 2 when he earned a 2-1 victory at Chicago, made 13 saves on Monday.

The Wings got on the board when Robert Lang scored the lone goal of the second period.

Rookie Jiri Hudler scored his fifth of the season, cutting the Wings' deficit to 3-2. But Columbus seemingly put the game out of reach when Fedorov took Nash's crossing pass and rocketed a shot past Osgood at 18:08.

Detroit, however, didn't give up, and Lang punched in his second goal of the game 20 seconds after Fedorov scored.

The Wings are 10-7 in one-goal games this season, and are 2-3 in the month of December.

Columbus goalie Fredrik Norrena was simply phenomenal, stopping 22 shots through two periods, including 15 of 16 in the second. He finished with 33 saves.

The loss snapped the Wings' seven-game winning streak at Columbus. The Wings had won three straight and eight of nine overall against Columbus, including a 4-1 home victory on Nov. 4. Dan Cleary scored twice for the Wings, who outshot the Blue Jackets 37-17 and won for the 24th time in 30 meetings all time.
