Jenner scores twice and Blue Jackets overcome Jokinen's hat trick in 5-3 win over Penguins

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Boone Jenner scored his second goal of the game to offset Jussi Jokinen's hat trick and lift the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in a preseason game Saturday.

Jenner notched the winner by banking a backhander in off of traffic in front 7:21 into the third period.

Brandon Dubinsky and Jenner scored in the first period and Cam Atkinson added a goal in the second before Jokinen scored three straight goals in a span of 8:28 in the second to tie the game.

Derek MacKenzie added an empty netter with 44 seconds left in the game.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 19 of 23 Columbus shots, while last season's Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky made 38 saves.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
