BLUE JACKETS 4, WILD 2
Riley Nash had a goal and an assist, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 23 shots and Columbus beat Minnesota to move ahead of Washington for the Metropolitan Division lead.
Nash, who signed as a free agent last summer, got his first goal in 29 games – and first as a Blue Jacket – in the second period and assisted on Markus Hannikainen’s first-period tally. Columbus has won two in a row and six out of eight. Cam Atkinson and Artemi Panarin also scored.
Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise scored for Minnesesota. But Syracuse used a 12-4 run to make it a three-point lead once again with less than two minutes to go until the fourth quarter.
