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

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
