Blue Jackets Rally Past Canucks 5-3 to Aid Wild Card Push
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Zach Werenski and Emil Bemstrom scored on power plays during Columbus' four-goal, third-period rally and the slumping Blue Jackets stunned the Vancouver Canucks 5-3. Riley Nash and Gustav Nyquist also scored in the third period for Columbus, which ended a two-game skid and moved three points ahead of Carolina for the second Eastern Conference wild card. It was the Blue Jackets' first regulation win since Feb. 7 and their second victory in 11 games. Bo Horvat, Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller scored for Vancouver. The Canucks have dropped three in a row and six of their last seven games on the road.
