Blue Jackets get 14th straight win
Alexander Wennberg fired a pair of goals to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 5-3 triumph over the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 on Thursday, extending their franchise-record winning streak to 14 games.
The run is tied for the fourth-longest winning streak in NHL history, and Columbus is closing in on the record of 17 set by Pittsburgh in 1992-93.
The Blue Jackets next play at Minnesota on Saturday night, and the Wild have won 12 straight, setting up the first meeting between clubs with such long streaks.
Brandon Saad, Nick Foligno and Lukas Sedlak also scored for Columbus, and Foligno and Zach Werenski each had a pair of assists. Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves for his 23rd win of the season.
