Franzen's hat trick pushes Wings past Avs

DETROIT (AP) - Johan Franzen scored three goals, and the suddenly potent Detroit Red Wings rolled to a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

Detroit has won two straight with a combined 10 goals after scoring a total of six in a six-game skid following a 5-0 start.

Nicklas Lidstrom started the scoring with a slap shot from the slot off a giveaway midway through the first period. Franzen gave the Red Wings a three-goal lead in the second period and chased goalie Semyon Varlamov.

Dan Cleary scored off his own rebound against Jean-Sebastien Giguere to essentially seal the win with 5:14.
