DETROIT — Jonas Gustavsson stopped 36 shots and the Detroit Red Wings held off the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Tuesday.

Daniel Alfredsson scored his first goal as a Red Wing and Todd Bertuzzi got the game winner. Henrik Zetterberg had two assists.

Cam Atkinson scored for Columbus and Sergei Bobrobsky made 30 saves.

Bertuzzi’s power-play goal gave the Red Wings a 2-1 with 8 minutes, 46 seconds left during the middle period. He scored from just outside the crease for his second goal.

Atkinson put the Blue Jackets on the board and tied the game 7:48 into the second period with an unassisted power-play goal. It was a spectacular individual effort as Atkinson carried the puck the length of the ice, bulled past Detroit defenseman Dan DeKeyser, got off one shot and then jammed the rebound past Gustavsson. It was Atkinson’s second goal.

Alfredsson gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead 5:05 into the game when he blasted a slap shot past Bobrovsky from the left circle.

Detroit led 1-0 after the first period, despite being outshot 18-7.
