''It is something I'll always remember, for sure,'' Nyquist said after playing in Detroit for the first time as a visitor after playing 481 games for the Red Wings. ''It was cool. This place is always going to be close to my heart after being here for so many years. It was nice to come back with a win.''

Nyquist extended his point streak to three games. He was given a round of applause by the fans when he was shown on the videoboards early in the game.

Oliver Bjorkstrand scored a tiebreaking goal in the first period off Nyquist's no-look, backhanded pass.

''He's aware of all situations with and without the puck,'' Tortorella said.

Jonathan Bernier had 34 saves for the Red Wings, who have lost 14 of their last 16 games.

''We've got a whole lot of guys that are good hockey players in our room that aren't playing as good as they can,'' Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ''We've got to find a way to pick it up and play lots better.''

Adam Erne scored his first goal in his 27th game with the Red Wings early in the first period and had another goal late in the opening period.

''It took a while but I'm just happy to get it,'' he said. ''Not happy that we didn't come away with the win.''

Columbus was dominant, controlling the puck as if it was on a power play and making line changes while keeping the puck in Detroit's end, and had a huge advantage in shots.

''I thought we played the style that they wanted,'' Bernier said. ''I don't think we spent a lot of time in their zone.''

Bernier made 11 saves in the first and 13 in the second to give the Red Wings a chance to compete.

The goaltender did not have a defense for Dubois' wrist shot that sailed past his glove and into the net to put Columbus ahead 4-3.

''It's a game with not a lot of chances either way,'' Red Wings center Dylan Larkin said. ''They got their chance on DuBois going down there and they capitalized on it.''

NOTES: Columbus D Andrew Peeke was injured early in the game. ''He's out for a while,'''' Tortorella said. ''I think his hand is broken.'' ...
