COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- The first goal of Derek Dorsett's NHL career turned out to be the game-winner Tuesday and boosted Columbus to a 4-2 victory over Vancouver.

The Blue Jackets bounced back from a 6-3 loss at Nashville Saturday with the help of 23 saves from Pascal Leclaire. Jason Chimera, Kristian Huselius and Rick Nash also scored for Columbus.

Vancouver finished off a six-game road trip with its third straight loss. Roberto Luongo made 29 saves.

Dorsett gave Columbus a 3-1 lead at 14:23 of the second with his milestone goal. The Canucks pulled within 3-2 at 5:01 of the third when Kevin Bieksa scored from just in front of the net.

Nash clinched it with an empty-net goal with 18 seconds remaining.
