COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Rookie Boone Jenner and veteran Brandon Dubinsky scored 40 seconds apart in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky had 39 saves to lead the Blue Jackets past the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Tuesday night.
Nick Foligno and Derek MacKenzie also had goals and Nathan Horton had two assists for the Blue Jackets, who have won five of six.
Columbus was playing one night after its game at Dallas was postponed in the first period when the Stars’ Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench.
The Blue Jackets and Red Wings came in to this game tied with 71 points in the East and battling for playoff position.
Danny DeKeyser scored for the Red Wings, who went to third-string goalie Petr Mrazek when Jimmy Howard couldn’t play because of the flu. Mrazek stopped 33 shots.
Detroit has dropped four of five (1-3-1).
