Blue Jackets stay hot, down Red Wings in SO

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Matt Calvert and Ryan Johansen each scored in the shootout, enabling the surging Columbus Blue Jackets to continue their season success against the Detroit Red Wings with a 3-2 decision at Joe Louis Arena.

Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had the regulation goals to help Columbus complete a home-and-home weekend sweep of the Red Wings and earn their fifth consecutive victory -- the club's longest winning streak since a five-game run from Nov. 17-24, 2010.

Sergei Bobrovsky, fresh off a 30-save performance in Saturday's 3-0 triumph over the Wings in Columbus, stopped 21 shots through overtime before turning back two of Detroit's three skaters in the deciding phase.

Jakub Kindl and Johan Franzen both potted goals in the loss, the Red Wings' fourth in five meetings with the Blue Jackets this season (1-3-1). Jimmy Howard recorded 19 saves for Detroit, but failed to come up with one in the shootout portion.
