COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings remain one of the few NHL teams with a better record on the road than at home.

Detroit can win its 10th consecutive road game and set a single-season league record for victories away from home Saturday when it visits the Columbus Blue Jackets.

With a 28-6-3 road record, the Red Wings can surpass the record set by the New Jersey Devils in 1998-1999. The Central Division champions have a six-point lead over Ottawa for the Presidents' Trophy and are nine points ahead of Dallas for first place in the Western Conference.

Brendan Shanahan scored his 35th goal and Tomas Holmstrom added the clincher in the fifth round of a shootout as Detroit posted a 6-5 victory over Columbus on Friday.

Rick Nash scored two goals to help the Blue Jackets rally from a three-goal deficit.

Columbus registered its 200th goal of the season Friday - 28th best in the league - and has lost six of the first seven encounters against Detroit this season.
