Ryan Johansen scored the game-winner early in the second period and Rick Nash added a power-play tally as the Columbus Blue Jackets picked up their second win with a 3-1 triumph over the visiting Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.
Fedor Tyutin added his second goal and Steve Mason made 19 saves for the Blue Jackets, who clipped their latest slide at two games and improved their NHL-low point total to five.
Nash struck on a 5-on-3 power play at the 2:23 mark in the first, wristing it between Dan Ellis’ pads for his fourth goal.
The Ducks would even it at 1-1 on Bobby Ryan’s fourth tally six minutes later, but the second period belonged to Columbus. Johansen scored on a breakaway at the 1:57 mark, taking it up the right side of the slot and backhanding it over Ellis’ blocker to make it 2-1.
Tyutin added the insurance tally with 7:08 left in the second on a slap shot from above the right face-off circle, sending the Ducks to their fifth loss in six games.
Both teams were feisty on Sunday, combining for 56 penalty minutes and four fights.
