RALEIGH, N.C. - Ryan Johansen and Jack Skille scored 1:28 apart late in the third period to rally the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-3 win over Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night.

Jeff Skinner scored two goals and Alexander Semin gave Carolina the lead midway through the third period before Columbus came back to win.

Columbus also got goals from Artem Anisimov and Corey Tropp as the Blue Jackets beat Carolina for the sixth straight time.

Mike McKenna, playing his fourth game with the Blue Jackets, finished with 30 saves and earned his first win of the season.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
