Blue Jack­ets skate to win over Rangers

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - SPORTS -

COLUM­BUS, OHIO >> Nick Foligno scored twice, Sergei Bo­brovsky re­turned from a team sus­pen­sion and stopped 22 shots and the Colum­bus Blue Jack­ets held off a late surge and de­feated the New York Rangers 7-5 Sun­day night.

Cam Atkin­son and Artemi Pa­narin each had a goal and an as­sist, Ryan Mur­ray had two as­sists and nine other play­ers picked up points in the of­fen­sive ex­plo­sion for Colum­bus. But two goals by the Rangers late in the third pe­riod turned it into a closer game.

The Blue Jack­ets have won four of the last five, despite be­ing ter­ri­ble on the power play. They man­aged the wild vic­tory over the Rangers despite com­ing up empty on five power plays.

Mats Zuc­carello had two goals, and Ryan Stome, Chris Krei­der and Jimmy Ve­sey also scored for the Rangers. Alexan­dar Ge­orgiev, spell­ing starter Hen­rik Lungqvist on the sec­ond night of a back-to-back, had 33 saves. New York has lost six of its last seven games.

An­thony Du­clair, Lukas Sed­lak and David Savard also scored for the Blue Jack­ets, and Bo­brovsky — who had been benched for Thurs­day’s game for vi­o­lat­ing a team pol­icy and didn’t play in Satur­day’s over­time win over Wash­ing­ton — wasn’t ter­rific, but held off the Rangers af­ter they pulled the goalie for a sixth skater late in the game.

JETS 4, DUCKS 3 >> Bryan Lit­tle scored at 4:49 of over­time as Win­nipeg beat Ana­heim and ex­tended the Ducks’ los­ing streak to a fran­chise-record 11 games.

Blake Wheeler, Pa­trik Laine and Ben Chiarot also scored and Con­nor Helle­buyck made

28 saves to help the Jets im­prove to 5-2-0 in their last seven games. They have won four straight at home.

Brian Gib­bons, Rickard Rakell and An­drew Cogliano scored and John Gib­son stopped

30 shots for the Ducks. They are 0-7-4 dur­ing the skid. HUR­RI­CANES 6, PREDA­TORS 3 >> Se­bas­tian Aho had three goals and an as­sist to lead Carolina past Nashville.

Justin Wil­liams, Saku Mae­nala­nen and Lu­cas Wall­mark also scored for Carolina, which won for the sev­enth time in eight games and earned its fifth con­sec­u­tive vic­tory at home. Micheal Fer­land had two as­sists.

Nashville, which had earned at least a point in seven straight games, got two goals from Filip Fors­berg and an­other from Colton Sis­sons. Goal­tender Pekka Rinne was chased in the sec­ond pe­riod.
