Blue Jackets win keeps Bruins behind Lightning

BOSTON — Boone Jenner scored two goals, Scott Hartnell had a goal and an assist, and the Blue Jackets beat the Bruins 6-4 on Monday night.

The Bruins loss kept the Lightning in second in the Atlantic Division. Tampa Bay and Boston each have 70 points but the Lightning has a game in hand.

William Karlsson, Brandon Saad and Dalton Prout also scored for the Blue Jackets, who avoided a sweep in the three-game season series by picking up a point for 10th time in 12 games (7-2-3).

Columbus goaltender Joonas Korpisalo made 26 saves.

Game highlights: Mike Richards scored a disputed winning goal, his first in more than a year, as the host Capitals beat the Coyotes 3-2. Arizona goalie Louis Domingue appeared to have the puck covered in his crease when Washington's Tom Wilson poked it away, and Richards rifled it home. … Tomas Hertl, Logan Couture and Joe Thornton each scored twice as the visiting Sharks beat the Blues 6-3. St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott left with an apparent injury in the first, and Sharks defenseman Matt Tennyson left after a hard hit from behind by wing Ryan Reaves.

Trade: The Sharks acquired defenseman Roman Polak and forward Nick Spaling from the Maple Leafs, giving up 2017 and 2018 second-round picks and forward Raffi Torres.
