NEWARK, N.J. - Boone Jenner and Cam Atkinson scored 35 seconds apart in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky made 23 saves to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-1 victory over New Jersey on Tuesday night, snapping the Devils' fourth-game winning streak.

Scott Hartnell added an unassisted goal later in the period as the Blue Jackets won their second straight game under new coach John Tortorella despite having only 14 shots.

Bobrovsky lost his shutout with 2:28 to play when Kyle Palmieri scored on a power-play rebound.

Jenner snapped a scoreless tie at 9:03 of the final period after a puck hit off former Devil David Clarkson in front. The centre got the deflection and fired the puck past a defenceless Cory Schneider for his sixth goal of the season and third in the last two games.
