Flyers’ point streak ends in loss to Jackets
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Matt Calvert scored two goals, including the game-winner midway through the third period, to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Tuesday night.
Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Johansen and James Wisniewski also scored for the Blue Jackets, who snapped Philadelphia's nine-game point streak.
Wayne Simmonds and Michael Del Zotto had goals for the Flyers, who remained six points behind idle Boston for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.
Calvert scored the go-ahead goal with 10:06 left in the final period when he was the beneficiary of a deft pass from Cam Atkinson for an easy goal that put Columbus up 3-2. The play started when Philadelphia's Vincent Lecavalier turned the puck over in his own zone.
