Third-period surge sends Blue Jackets over Isles

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Johansen each collected a goal and two assists as the Columbus Blue Jackets posted a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders to halt a five-game skid.

The Blue Jackets got three unanswered goals from R.J. Umberger, Cam Atkinson and James Wisniewski in the third period to end their longest winless stretch since an 0-5-1 rut in December of 2011. Wisniewski added an assist on the evening, while Sergei Bobrovsky aided Columbus' cause with a 24-save effort between the pipes.

The Islanders fell to 0-3-0 on their current four-game road trip despite goals from Frans Nielsen and Thomas Hickey. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 24-of-28 shots in the loss.
