(Sports Network) - The surging Detroit Red Wings seek their sixth consecutive win tonight when they welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets to Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit's spurt has come on the heels of a three-game skid, and the team sits tied with Nashville atop the Central Division with 17 points.

On Thursday, Robert Lang scored the game-winning goal 6:19 into the third period and Chris Osgood stopped all but one of the 22 shots he faced, as the Red Wings came from behind to defeat the host Chicago Blackhawks 2-1.

Henrik Zetterberg added a goal and an assist for the Red Wings, who have managed each win during the current winning streak by just one goal.

The Red Wings, who are 3-1-1 at home, begin a three-game set at The Joe tonight and will host Edmonton on Wednesday.

Columbus, meanwhile, ended a two-game slide on Friday, as Manny Malhotra's goal in the 11th round of the shootout was the game winner in a 5-4 home win over Calgary.
