Bobrovsky stops 36 shots, Atkinson has goal and assist as Blue Jackets beat Hurricanes 3-0

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves and Cam Atkinson had a goal and an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past Carolina 3-0 on Friday night, ending the Hurricanes' season-best five-game winning streak.

Boone Jenner and Brandon Dubinsky also scored for the Blue Jackets, who have won three of four.

Playing his first game in front of the home fans after missing the first 40 games due to shoulder surgery, off-season free-agent acquisition Nathan Horton contributed with a first-period hit that led to Jenner's goal.

The teams came in separated by five points in the Metropolitan Division, with the Hurricanes tied for fourth and the Blue Jackets in seventh.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
