The winning streak is over.

Filip Hronek's two goals and Dylan Larkin's goal and two assists led the Red Wings to a dominant 6-1 victory over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Saturday night.

1st period

Detroit opened the scoring with 10:02 remaining in the period when Dylan Larkin fired a shot past Korpisalo from the bumper spot on the power play. The play started because of Moritz Seider's sweet no-look backhand pass at the point to David Perron at the left dot before Perron found Larkin at the bumper.

The Blue Jackets had three key chances to tie the game, first from Yegor Chinakov from the left-wing side with 7:20 left, then from Cole Sillinger on a breakaway with 4:06 to play, and lastly from Eric Robinson from the right slot. All were denied by Red Wings goalie Ville Husso.

The Red Wings took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission along with a 13-12 edge in shots on goal.

2nd period

Detroit's lead didn't last long. Emil Bemstrom tied the game just 43 seconds into the middle frame off of a nice cross-crease pass by Boone Jenner after he toe-dragged his way through two Detroit defensemen.

After Bemstrom's goal, things went downhill for Columbus.

With 13:25 left in the period, Marcus Bjork tried to advance the puck through the defensive zone, but played the puck into the slot where Filip Hronek was there all alone to fire a slap shot past Korpisalo.

The Red Wings doubled their lead with 9:15 left on a Ben Chiarot slap shot from the left point that went through Korpisalo's five-hole.

Hronek scored his second goal of the game with 2:58 left in the period as he was left all alone at the right circle before firing a wrist shot into the top of the net.

The Red Wings led 4-1 after two periods.

3rd period

Detroit tacked onto its lead 5:21 into the third period when Dominik Kubalik beat Korpisalo on a slap shot from the right circle on the power play.

Tyler Bertuzzi made it a 6-1 game with 10:56 left in regulation after he found a loose puck on the right doorstep. 


That would be the final score as the Blue Jackets fell to 6-10-1.
