Blue Jackets hang on to edge struggling Stars 3-2

DALLAS (AP) Boone Jenner had a goal and an assist, Oliver Bjorkstrand and Eric Robinson added third-period goals, and the Columbus Blue Jackets held off a late rally attempt to beat the struggling Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday night.

Korpisalo stopped 22 shots for the Blue Jackets, who have won two straight - equaling their longest winning streak of the season - after going 0-4-1.

"We've just got to keep taking a step forward and find some consistency," Columbus coach John Tortorella said. "I'm not going to jump up and down and do cartwheels here. We're slowly trying to get better. You put a couple of games together, you win a couple of games."
