Wings blitz Jackets, grab lead in West
false
By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS -- Tomas Holmstrom scored twice and the Red Wings beat the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-1, on Sunday to move into first overall in the league.

Brett Lebda had a goal and an assist, and Pavel Datsyuk scored for Detroit, which broke the game open with three second-period goals.

The Wings have earned points in six straight (3-0-3) for a total of 108 to surpass Buffalo in the race for the Presidents' Trophy, given to the team with the most regular-season points.

Detroit, which has won five straight Central Division titles, also padded their division lead to three points over Nashville. Both teams have three games remaining.

Rick Nash scored his 25th with a wraparound for the Blue Jackets with just under a minute left, ending goaltender Dominik Hasek's bid for his 76th career shutout. He made 31 saves.

Columbus has lost three straight since a four-game winning streak.

After a scoreless first period, Detroit's special teams took over and staked the Wings to a 3-0 lead.

With the Wings on a power play early in the second period, Lebda snapped a shot from the right point at 1:57 that looked to handcuff goalie Fredrik Norrena, who had won four of his last five starts.
