DETROIT (AP) -- Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout and the streaking Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Sunday to complete a home-and-home sweep.

Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus, which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red Wings 3-0 in Columbus on Saturday.
