Flames topple Blue Jackets 4-2

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — In the first two periods, the Columbus Blue Jackets hit three goal posts.

It was that kind of night.

Johnny Gaudreau scored his team-leading 35th goal and Michael Frolik added a goal and an assist as the Calgary Flames beat Columbus 4-2 on Tuesday.

“We’re finding ways to not score, I guess. It’s frustrating, but you’ve got to keep going and have the faith that it’s going to break,” Blue Jackets forward Matt Duchene said. “Today we lost some ground, but we’re still in a (playoff) spot.”

David Rittich made 31 saves to win his fourth start in a row. Andrew Mangiapane and Matthew Tkachuk also scored for the Flames, and Austin Czarnik had two assists.

Oliver Bjorkstrand and defenseman Zach Werenski scored for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 27 shots.
