Foligno scores late to push Blue Jackets past Hurricanes 3-2

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Cam Atkinson scored after missing a dozen games with an injury, Nick Foligno got his first goal in 23 games and rookie goalie Elvis Merzlikins turned in another gem. All that said, the Columbus Blue Jackets probably shouldn't have won Thursday night.

The Blue Jackets had trouble generating many offensive chances for a large chunk of the game, but Foligno found the back of the net with 1:41 left to steal the 3-2 win from the Carolina Hurricanes.

The 18 shots on goal generated by the Blue Jackets in the game were the second-fewest of the season.
