(AP) - Pavel Datsyuk and Jason Williams scored in the shootout to lift the Detroit Red Wings past the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Jaroslav Balastik scored in the shootout for Columbus, but Detroit goalie Chris Osgood stopped Rick Nash and former Red Wing Sergei Fedorov.

Shanahan tipped Nicklas Lidstrom's shot from the point out of mid-air, from the high slot, past Pascal Leclaire to give the Red Wings a 3-2 lead with 9:20 remaining. It was Shanahan's 20th goal of the season, giving him 17 consecutive seasons with at least 20 goals.

Columbus tied the game at 2 at 8:30 of the third period on a power-play goal by Westcott. His one-time slap shot from the top of the right circle, off a pass from Fedorov, beat Osgood

The Blue Jackets tied it with 6:47 remaining in the opening period when Nash beat Chris Osgood between the pads from in front of the net as he was being dragged down.
