Cam Atkinson scores twice, Sergei Bobrovsky has 26 saves in Jackets' 5-1 win over Capitals

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Cam Atkinson scored two goals and Sergei Bobrovsky continued his hot streak to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Washington Capitals 5-1 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory.

The Capitals, who got a goal from John Carlson, have lost four in a row and 11 of 15.

Ryan Johansen added a goal and assist, James Wisniewski had a goal, Mark Letestu scored for the fifth time in six games and Jack Johnson had two assists for the Blue Jackets, who had lost their past five meetings with Washington.

The victory moved the Blue Jackets to two points out of playoff position with at least one game in hand on every team ahead of them in the Metropolitan Division and wild-card playoff races.

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
