Johansen, Jenner each have 2 points, Bobrovsky stops 36 shots as Jackets beat Panthers, 4-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Linemates Ryan Johansen and Boone Jenner each had a goal and an assist in the first period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Saturday night.

After Brad Boyes cut Florida's deficit to 2-1 early in the second period, Nick Foligno and Mark Letestu scored for the Blue Jackets. Nathan Horton had two assists in the opening 20 minutes.

In their last 13 games, the Blue Jackets won eight in a row, lost three straight and now have won the past two. It was Columbus' final home game for a month due to four road games and the NHL Olympic hiatus.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
