Rookie Marko Dano recorded his first two-goal game in the NHL and Sergei Bobrovsky made 38 saves as the Blue Jackets routed the Vancouver Canucks 6-2 on Thursday night.
Rene Bourque, Cam Atkinson, Scott Hartnell and Alexander Wennberg — an empty-netter — also scored for Columbus, which has won five of its last six.
Bo Horvat and Daniel Sedin had goals for Vancouver. Eddie Lack allowed five goals on 30 shots before being pulled in favor of Jakob Markstrom midway through the third period.
Markstrom finished with two saves for Vancouver, which is just a point up on Calgary for second place in the Pacific Division with a game in hand.
