Jenner, Johnson have goal and assist, Bobrovsky makes 31 saves as Jackets beat Islanders 4-0

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu each had a goal and an assist, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 shots for his second shutout of the week to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the New York Islanders 4-0 on Sunday night.

The Blue Jackets, desperate to hang on to a playoff spot in the East, matched a season high with three power-play goals.

Jack Johnson and Ryan Murray ended long droughts with goals, and Brandon Dubinsky had two assists. Bobrovsky, who won at Philadelphia 2-0 on Thursday, earned his fifth shutout of the season.

Anders Nilsson made 29 saves for the Islanders, who had their seven-game point streak end.

Columbus won at home after going 1-4-2 in its last seven games at Nationwide Arena.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
