(Newser) – The Detroit Red Wings cruised to a ninth straight victory last night over the Columbus Blue Jackets, fueled by two power-play goals and 15 saves from goalie Dominik Hasek.  Dan Cleary's eye had a close encounter with the puck, which knocked him from the game for 10 minutes. Elsewhere in the NHL:

  • Brian McCabe got his 400th point in Toronto's 3-0 blanking of Buffalo.
  • Atlanta easily sent Florida packing, 4-1.
  • Chicago's defense continued its scoring streak for a 4-2 win over Saint Louis.
