Foligno's 2 goals lead Blue Jackets scoring spurt in 5-1 win over Flames

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Nick Foligno scored twice in a club-record 51 seconds and the Columbus Blue Jackets scored three goals in a 1:15 span of the second period to beat the Calgary Flames 5-1 on Friday night, extending their franchise-record points streak to 12 games.

Artem Anisimov, Colton Gillies and Jared Boll also had goals and Sergei Bobrovsky continued his strong play with 24 saves as the Blue Jackets, last in the NHL on Feb. 24, ran their record to 8-0-4 in their hot streak.

R.J. Umberger and Derek MacKenzie each had two assists.

The two goals by Foligno and one by Anisimov in 75 seconds also were the fastest three goals by the Blue Jackets.

Curtis Glencross scored for the Flames, who have lost their past nine road games (0-8-1).
