COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves and Cam Atkinson had a goal and an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past Carolina 3-0 on Friday night, ending the Hurricanes' season-best five-game winning streak.

Boone Jenner and Brandon Dubinsky also scored for the Blue Jackets, who have won three of four.

Playing his first game in front of the home fans after missing the first 40 games due to shoulder surgery, off-season free-agent acquisition Nathan Horton contributed with a first-period hit that led to Jenner's goal.

The teams came in separated by five points in the Metropolitan Division, with the Hurricanes tied for fourth and the Blue Jackets in seventh.
