Atkinson scores in sixth straight game, Blue Jackets top Maple Leafs
Anderson gets two goals, Bobrovsky makes 32 saves for Columbus
Cam Atkinson extended his goal streak to six games, and the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 at Nationwide Arena on Friday.
Atkinson’s shorthanded goal at 16:14 of the second period gave the Blue Jackets a 3-2 lead. He took a pass from Alexander Wennberg, dragged the puck around John Tavares and snapped a shot from between the circles.
“It was a big goal,” Blue Jackets forward Josh Anderson said. “You could see Cam was feeling it a little bit tonight coming down there shorthanded.”
