Foligno's 2 goals help Blue Jackets beat Ducks 4-2, win for 11th time in 14 games

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Sergei Bobrovsky made 34 saves, Nick Foligno scored twice in the third period and the Columbus Blue Jackets also got goals from Ryan Johansen and R.J. Umberger in a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

The Blue Jackets are 11-0-3 since Jan. 6, a stretch that began with a franchise-record eight-game winning streak. Bobrovsky, last season's Vezina Trophy winner, is 10-2-0 with a 2.17 goals-against average in his last 12 starts after missing 14 games because of a groin strain.

Mathieu Perreault and Ryan Getzlaf scored for Anaheim and Federik Anderson stopped 29 shots.

The Ducks are 4-5-0 since Jan. 15 but still lead Chicago for the league's highest point total with two games left before the Olympic break.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
