DETROIT (AP) Ray McCallum scored 22 points to lead Detroit to an 83-78 victory over Canisius on Sunday.
The starting five scored all of the points for the Titans (8-5). Jason Calliste had 19 points, Nick Minnerath scored 16, and Doug Anderson and Juwan Howard Jr. had 13 points apiece. McCallum also had seven assists for Detroit, which is 7-0 at home.
Billy Baron led the Golden Griffins (9-4) with 20 points and eight rebounds. Jordan Heath and Isaac Sosa had 17 points apiece, and Harold Washington scored 13 points for Canisius.
Detroit has won 15 home games in a row dating to last season. The Titans open their Horizon League schedule Thursday at home against Milwaukee, while Canisius begins Metro Atlantic play Thursday at home against Fairfield.
The Caps looked to be in real trouble after blowing leads and losing in overtime in both Game 1 and Game 2.
After two straight wins, however, Washington is in control against the Columbus Blue Jackets as the series returns to Washington, D.C. for Game 5.
On the latest eipisode of the Capitals Faceoff Podcast, JJ Regan and Tarik El-Bashir talk about what changed for the Capitals between Game 2 and 3, as well as resetting their series predictions.
And as always, they answer several viewer questions.

Andre Burakovsky will be sidelined for the remainder of Washington's first-round series vs. Columbus, but he isn’t necessarily out for the remainder of the playoffs, Coach Barry Trotz said on Friday.
Burakovsky suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury in the Capitals' Game 2 overtime loss and has not been on the ice since.
Trotz said the 23-year-old top-six winger needs “minor” surgery.
That procedure, however, will not preclude Burakovsky from returning to the Caps’ lineup in subsequent rounds, should Washington advance.
“That's why I said minor surgery,” Trotz added, asked if Burky might return at a later date.
This latest surgery is the second for Burakovsky this season. In late October, he had a procedure to repair a broken left thumb and missed the next 20 games.
Since his departure in Game 2, Jakub Vrana and Chandler Stephenson have taken turns replacing Burakovsky on the second line with Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie.
