COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 shots for his second shutout of the week to lead the Blue Jackets past the New York Islanders 4-0 on Sunday night.

The Blue Jackets, desperate to hang on to a playoff spot in the East, matched a season high with three power-play goals.

Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu each had a goal and an assist, Jack Johnson and Ryan Murray ended long droughts with goals, and Brandon Dubinsky had two assists.

Bobrovsky, who won at Philadelphia 2-0 on Thursday, earned his fifth shutout of the season.

Anders Nilsson made 29 saves for the Islanders, who had their seven-game point streak end.

Columbus won at home after going 1-4-2 in its last seven games at Nationwide Arena.

    Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

    An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

    The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
