PHILADELPHIA (AP) — James Wisniewski and Nick Foligno both scored two goals, and the Columbus Blue Jackets snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.
Ryan Johansen had four assists for the Blue Jackets, who tallied three goals on the power play and avoided a team record for consecutive losses.
Jakub Voracek, Claude Giroux and Michael Del Zotto scored for Philadelphia, which had won three straight but hadn’t played in nearly a week.
Foligno broke a 2-2 tie with 10:13 left in the second period when he waited out goalie Steve Mason, while moving laterally in front, and deposited a wrist shot into a wide-open net.
Wisniewski put Columbus up 4-2 just under four minutes later when he scored during a 5-on-3 advantage, beating Mason on the stick side after a rebound in front.
