Gilbert Brule and Sergei Fedorov added goals in the third period, while Modin and Fedorov had an assist each for the Blue Jackets, who rose to 2-3 on their six-game home stand.

Evgeni Nabokov allowed three goals on 19 shots for the Sharks, who have dropped three of five.

Fedorov scored the game's lone power-play goal.

In two earlier games this season, San Jose had outscored Columbus, 8-2.
