Blue Jack­ets get 14th straight win

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

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.
