Johansen and Dubinsky have 3 points each, Blue Jackets beat Islanders 5-2 to snap 5-game skid

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky each had a goal and two assists, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New York Islanders 5-2 on Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak.

Cam Atkinson and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who pulled away with three goals in the third period. James Wisniewski added an empty-net goal and an assist.

The line of Dubinsky, Johansen and Atkinson led the way, ending Columbus' longest skid in two years.

Last season's Vezina Trophy winner, Sergei Bobrovsky, who had struggled of late, played his second consecutive strong game. He made 24 saves and punctuated his performance with an assist on Wisniewski's goal.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
