TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Brandon Saad scored on a power play and Cam Atkinson had a short-handed goal in the third period in the Columbus Blue Jackets' 5-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

Alexander Wenneberg, Nick Foligno and Josh Anderson also scored to help the Blue Jackets improve to 9-2-2 in their last 13 games and 11-5-3 overall. The loss was only the second for the Lightning (13-8-1) in their last eight games against Columbus.

Tampa Bay's Ondrej Palat tied it at 3 with a delayed-penalty goal with 16:23 left, but Saad regained the lead with the Blue Jackets' second power-play goal of the game with 15:26 remaining.
