COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Center Ryan Johansen and rookie left winger Boone Jenner each had a goal and an assist, and the Columbus Blue Jackets survived their own sloppiness for a 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night in Nationwide Arena.
The win was the 10th in 13 games for Columbus, while Florida has lost three straight.
Left winger Nick Foligno and left winger Mark Letestu also scored for the Blue Jackets, while right winger Nathan Horton had two assists. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky had 36 saves.
The Panthers carried the play for much of the game, but gave up two goals late in the first period and never recovered.
Florida's only goal was scored by right winger Brad Boyes to pull the Panthers within 2-1 in the second period, but they could get no closer.
Panthers goaltender Tim Thomas finished with 26 saves.
The Blue Jackets scored twice in the first period to take a 2-0 lead, and it was Johansen's line -- with left winger Boone Jenner and right winger Nathan Horton -- doing all the damage.
At 15:33, Johansen carried the puck wide of Thomas, drew him out of the net and wrapped the puck behind him. Jenner was right there to bury it.
At 18:02, Johansen and Jenner reversed roles. This time, Jenner skated wide of Thomas, waited for him to commit, then spun around and, with a backhand pass, centered the puck for Johansen.
Johansen has three goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating in the Blue Jackets' last two games.
The Panthers mostly dominated the second period, taking 10 of the first 11 shots and pulling to 2-1 only 7:41 into the period.
Boyes tried to center a pass across the goal mouth to center Nick Bjugstad, but his pass caromed off the stickblade of Blue Jackets defenseman David Savard and went into the net behind Bobrovsky.
The Blue Jackets recovered the two-goal lead with 2:14 remaining in the third
Foligno skated into the Panthers' zone with two defenseman in front of him, but pulled up and fired a wrister that Thomas let get through his right arm and trickle behind him into the net.
The Panthers continued to buzz in the third, taking five of the first six shots. But Florida couldn't finish.
The Blue Jackets pushed the lead to 4-1 when the fourth line contributed, first with a massive forecheck and, eventually, with a Letestu goal at 9:28.
