Detroit, MI – Valtteri Filppula scored the only goal of the 2 victory over Columbus.
In the fourth round, Filppula quickly faked from the backhand to the forehand and roofed a shot over Curtis Sanford.
Ryan Johansen then had his wrist shot stopped by Jimmy Howard, and the Red Wings kept alive a home winning streak that started on November 5 against Anaheim. They have also won their last three games overall, each in a shootout, and each by a 3-2 score.
The home winning mark is the longest since the Philadelphia Flyers tied the NHL record with 20 straight home victories during the 1975-76 season.
