COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Nick Foligno set a career high with his 19th and 20th goals of the season and also had an assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the St. Louis Blues 7-1 on Friday night.

The defeat ended the Blues' seven-game winning streak and franchise-record 13-game points streak (12-0-1) — and the Blue Jackets' three-game losing skid.

Ryan Johansen scored his first NHL short-handed goal, Corey Tropp tallied for the first time in 66 games and Cam Atkinson, Matt Calvert and Scott Hartnell also scored for Columbus. Curtis McElhinney had 32 saves and Brandon Dubinsky had two assists. Johansen also had two assists and Tropp and Hartnell added helpers.

Paul Stastny scored a power-play goal for the Blues. Brian Elliott was pulled after giving up four goals on 14 shots with Jake Allen surrendering three on 19 shots.

The seven goals were a season-high for the Blue Jackets.
