Question of the Day
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to their franchise-record seventh straight win, a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings.
Nathan Horton scored in his 600th NHL game, Artem Anisimov had a goal and an assist and Ryan Johansen also scored for Columbus, with James Wisniewski picking up two assists. Sergei Bobrovsky moved to 8-0 in his past eight starts with 26 saves.
Jeff Carter, Dwight King and Robyn Regehr had goals for the Kings, who have lost three in a row. Mike Richards had two assists.
The Blue Jackets have been surging since getting Horton, who missed the first 40 games after shoulder surgery, and Bobrovsky, who sat out most of December with a strained groin, back on the ice.
They’re 8-1-0 with Horton, a big free-agent signing last summer from Boston, in the lineup.
MAPLE LEAFS 5, AVALANCHE 2
DENVER (AP) - Phil Kessel scored twice, James van Riemsdyk had a goal and an assist and Toronto beat Colorado for its sixth straight win.
Nazem Kadri also scored and James Reimer stopped 35 shots for Toronto.
The Maple Leafs are on their longest winning streak in eight years after losing four in a row. Toronto has climbed to fourth in the Eastern Conference standings during its win streak.
Rookie Nathan MacKinnon scored two goals for the Avalanche, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere had 19 saves in relief of Semyon Varlamov.
Colorado generated more early chances but Toronto scored first. Dion Phaneuf sent a puck from his own end off the backboards and Kessel, who got behind the Avalanche defense, put a soft shot past Varlamov 3:56 into the game.
ISLANDERS 5, RANGERS 3
NEW YORK (AP) - Thomas Vanek scored a power-play goal with 4:38 left, and the Islanders rallied from two goals down for a second straight day and beat the Rangers.
Vanek capped the comeback as the Rangers were trying to kill a penalty for too many men on the ice. Colin McDonald and defenseman Thomas Hickey scored in the second period to get the Islanders even.
Matt Martin scored a rare goal in the first, and Frans Nielsen added an empty-netter. Kevin Poulin made 30 saves in the Islanders’ ninth win in their past 11 road games.
