The Blue Jackets, winners of four of their last five games overall, had their four-game home winning streak snapped. Wild 5, Maple Leafs 3: Marc Chouinard had two goals as Minnesota beat Toronto. Thrashers 5, Stars 2 : Marian Hossa scored twice as Atlanta rallied for its first victory over Dallas. Mark Mowers and Mathieu Schneider also scored for the Western Conference-leading Red Wings, who won their third straight and improved to 5-0 against Columbus this season. “Our last four games have been our best string of games in awhile,” said Osgood, who stopped both Nikolai Zherdev and Rick Nash from close range in a scoreless opening period. “We’re playing a lot better.” Detroit coach Mike Babcock is already thinking about how his Red Wings need to play in the postseason. Tomas Holmstrom scored two power-play goals and Chris Osgood stopped 26 shots for his 42nd career shutout as the Red Wings beat the Blue Jackets 4-0 on Wednesday night. “All four goals, someone was right in the goalie’s face,” Babcock said. “That’s what you want and that’s what you have to do at playoff time to beat good goalies.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
