COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Brandon Dubinsky backed a solid effort from goalie Sergei Bobrovsky with a score and an assist Tuesday, sending Columbus over New Jersey 4-1.

Dubinsky's power-play tally midway through the second period forged a 1-1 tie and Cam Atkinson's unassisted goal less than 5 minutes later on a backhanded shot from the high slot put Columbus ahead to stay.

Bobrovsky turned aside 24-of-25 shots as the Blue Jackets won a second straight following a four-game skid.

James Wisniewski also scored and Marian Gaborik added an empty-netter in the victory.

Michael Ryder supplied the only goal for Devils, who fell to 1-4-3 on the season.

Cory Schneider made 20 saves for New Jersey.
