COLUMBUS -- Henrik Zetterberg scored the go-ahead goal and added an assist, and Joey MacDonald had 28 saves to help the Detroit Red Wings end a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

Johan Franzen had a goal and two assists, Niklas Kronwall and Valtteri Filppula both added a goal and assist, and Jan Mursak also scored for the Red Wings, who are 26-3-2 at home but only 16-16-1 on the road.

MacDonald (7-1-1) made a big stop on Ryan Russell's short-handed breakaway to keep the Red Wings in a 2-2 tie in the third period.

Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash, who was on the block but wasn't traded before Monday's NHL deadline, and Derek MacKenzie scored for Columbus.
