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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
