Islanders’ playoff push momentum hits a brick wall

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Josh Anderson and Nick Foligno each scored twice, sending the Blue Jackets to a 7-0 romp over the Islanders on Saturday.

The high-energy Blue Jackets didn’t show any rust in their first game back following their five-day break, unlike many teams that have struggled coming out of the bye week this season. Columbus scored three times in the first period, chasing Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss.

David Savard had a goal and three assists, Boone Jenner and Jack Johnson also scored and backup goaltender Joonas Korpisalo stopped all 24 shots for the Blue Jackets, who ended the Islanders’ three-game winning streak.

Columbus has a comfortable hold on the top wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, while the Islanders are in a tight race for the final playoff berth.
