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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
