|COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Cam Atkinson had a goal and an assist, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves as the Columbus Blue Jackets snapped the St. Louis Blues' season-high, six-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory on Friday night.
Artem Anisimov, Ryan Johansen and Marian Gaborik also had goals for Columbus, which continued its climb from cellar-dweller to playoff contention. The Blue Jackets, 11-1-3 in their last 15 home games, were last in the NHL after a 5-12-2 start but have earned points in 18 of 22 games since (13-4-5).
Kevin Shattenkirk made it 1-0 for the Blues, who went with rookie Jake Allen in goal instead of Brian Elliott, who has posted three shutouts in a row.
