Mark Letestu's power-play goal with 2:38 left gives Blue Jackets 3-2 win over Lightning

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Jack Johnson's power-play goal with 2:38 left lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night.

It was the Blue Jackets' season-high fourth win in a row.

Nathan Horton scored his 200th NHL goal, also on the power play, and added an assist. Ryan Johanson also had a goal for Columbus, 5-1 in the new year. Sergei Bobrovsky had 26 saves.

Alex Killorn and Victor Hedman had goals for Tampa Bay, and Anders Lindback stopped 25 shots.

Tampa Bay had been 17-1 when leading after two periods.

The Blue Jackets had a man advantage for the sixth time after Tyler Johnson was called for hooking with 3:28 remaining. Just 50 seconds later, James Wisniewski fed Johnson for a hard shot that beat Lindback through heavy traffic in front.

Johnson had gone 42 games without a goal.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
