COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Mark Letestu redirected Jack Johnson’s shot from the point with 2:38 left, lifting the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night.

It was the Blue Jackets’ season-high fourth win in a row.

Nathan Horton scored his 200th NHL goal, also on the power play, and Ryan Johansen had a goal for Columbus, which is 5-1 in the new year. Sergei Bobrovsky had 26 saves.

Alex Killorn and Victor Hedman had goals for Tampa Bay, and Anders Lindback stopped 25 shots.

Tampa Bay had been 17-1 when leading after two periods.

The Blue Jackets had a man advantage for the sixth time after Tyler Johnson was called for hooking with 3:28 remaining.

Just 50 seconds later, James Wisniewski fed Johnson for a hard shot that Letestu deflected past Lindback through heavy traffic in front.
