COLUMBUS, Ohio - Cam Atkinson scored twice while Marko Dano and Nick Foligno each had a goal and an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-2 win over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Artem Anisimov, like Atkinson, scored for the second game in a row for the Blue Jackets, who moved to 2-0 for the first time in five years.

Dano had his first NHL goal and points and Scott Hartnell and Ryan Johansen, who joined the Blue Jackets on Wednesday after a contract holdout, had two assists apiece.

Former Columbus captain Rick Nash picked up his third goal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Rangers, who opened the season by splitting two road games.
