With Detroit on a three-game losing streak, Henrik Zetterberg's go-ahead goal meant a whole lot to the slumping Red Wings.

Zetterberg's shot touched off a flurry of four goals, and Joey MacDonald did the rest in the Red Wings' 5-2 victory over the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

"We really needed a win," Zetterberg said. "We had a few bodies out. The guys that came out did a really good job."
