DETROIT Jonas Gustavsson stopped 36 shots and the Detroit Red Wings held off the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Daniel Alfredsson scored his first goal as a Red Wing and Todd Bertuzzi got the game-winner. Henrik Zetterberg had two assists.

Cam Atkinson scored for Columbus and Sergei Bobrobsky made 30 saves.

Bertuzzi's power-play goal gave the Red Wings a 2-1 with 8:46 left in the middle period. He scored from just outside the crease for his second goal.

Atkinson put the Blue Jackets on the board and tied the game 7:48 into the second period with an unassisted power-play goal. It was a spectacular individual effort as Atkinson carried the puck the length of the ice, bulled past Detroit defenseman Dan DeKeyser, got off one shot and then jammed the rebound past Gustavsson.
