Matt Calvert, Artem Anisimov and David Savard each had goals during a dominant first period that carried the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-2 victory over the sputtering New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Ryan Johansen added a late insurance marker and Mike McKenna stopped 17-of-18 in a strong relief effort of Curtis McElhinney to help the Blue Jackets post their fourth win in five outings and send the Rangers to a fourth straight loss, all have which come at the head of a franchise- record nine-game residency. McElhinney turned aside 15-of-16 chances before departing after the first period due to a lower-body injury. Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had an early exit as well, pulled by head coach Alain Vigneault after 11:10 of action when letting up three goals on 13 shots. Dominic Moore and Dan Girardi each scored for New York, with Cam Talbot saving 13-of-14 shots upon taking over for Lundqvist.
