Rick Nash had a goal and two assists and Nikolai Zherdev and Ron Hainsey added a goal each for Columbus. Dick Tarnstrom had two assists.
Pavel Datsyuk scored for the Red Wings and Chris Osgood stopped nine shots before being pulled.
Columbus jumped out to a 3-0 first-period lead. Nash opened the scoring with his 30th goal when he put in a rebound on the power play 7:29 into the game. Modin made it 2-0 with 6:55 left in the first period when he skated between Brett Lebda and Andreas Lilja, who fell. Modin went in alone and beat Osgood. Zherdev scored on a backhand shot from the slot with 5:01 left in the opening period for his 23d goal.
Thrashers 4, Devils 3 - Marian Hossa scored the tying goal for visiting Atlanta with 18.1 seconds left in regulation and Pascal Dupuis had the decisive tally in the 10th round of a shootout victory over New Jersey.
Hossa smacked a loose puck past Martin Brodeur to force overtime and set up Dupuis's winner.
