Dan Cleary and Tomas Holmstrom scored two goals apiece, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 6-2 triumph over the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.
Valtteri Filppula notched a tally and an assist, Johan Franzen scored his 100th career goal and Todd Bertuzzi and Henrik Zetterberg both set up a pair of scores for the Red Wings, who improved to 6-1-1 at Joe Louis Arena this season and 2-0-0 on their six-game homestand.
Six days after posting a 3-1 victory in Edmonton, Detroit gained control of this one by scoring three times in the first period. Filppula began the outburst at 7:29 while Holmstrom and Cleary tallied just over four minutes apart later in the session.
Cleary, who has scored in four straight games and recorded a point in six in a row, made it 4-0 early in the second and Franzen netted his milestone goal during a power play with 2:57 remaining. Holmstrom gave Detroit a 6-1 cushion late in the third.
Jimmy Howard made 23 saves while Pavel Datsyuk and captain Nicklas Lidstrom each notched an assist to extend their respective points streaks to 10 games.
