Blue Jackets score 3 goals in 1st, hand Rangers 4th straight loss

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Matt Calvert, Artem Anisimov and David Savard scored in the first 11:10 and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Rangers 4-2 on Thursday night, sending New York to its fourth straight loss.

The Rangers, 0-3-1 on its nine-game homestand, closed within 3-2 in the third period, but Ryan Johansen pushed Columbus' lead back to two goals with 1:32 left.

The Blue Jackets goalie tandem of Curtis McElhinney and Mike McKenna, who are subbing for injured reigning Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky, stopped 32 of 34 shots.

Columbus (14-15-3) has won two in a row.

Dominic Moore and Dan Girardi scored for New York. Henrik Lundqvist was pulled after he stopped only 10 of 13 shots in the first period.

Cam Talbot relieved and made 13 saves the rest of the way, allowing only Johansen's goal between his pads.
