Preds drop fourth-straight game, fall at Columbus 4-3
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Sergei Bobrovksy shook off a slap shot to his mask and withstood two late goals, and Mark Letestu had a goal and an assist as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the struggling Nashville Predators 4-3 on Tuesday night to extend their franchise-record point streak to 11 games.
Fedor Tyutin, Nikita Nikitin and Derick Brassard also scored for Columbus, which is on a 7-0-4 run. The Blue Jackets won this one with their offense that ranks last in the NHL.
Vinny Prospal added three assists.
Bobrovsky, who made 32 saves, came in on a 6-0-2 spurt with two shutouts in the previous eight games. Jack Johnson had two assists for the Blue Jackets, whose previous four games were decided by shootouts.
Gabriel Bourque, Chris Mueller and Mike Fisher scored for the Predators, who are on a season-worst, 4-game skid.
