Carolina Hurricanes' winning streak ended on Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets
The Carolina Hurricanes' winning streak finally came to an end in Ohio as the Columbus Blue Jackets clinched a comfortable 3-0 NHL victory.
Cam Atkinson, Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner scored the goals - Sergei Bobrovsky made 36 saves for the Blue Jackets - as the Canes spurned the opportunity to win a sixth straight game.
The New York Rangers needed Rick Nash to snap a tie and inflict a fifth straight defeat on the Dallas Stars.
Friday's NHL results:
Avalanche 1 Islanders 2 (OT)
Blue Jackets 3 Hurricanes 0
Oilers 4 Penguins 3 (OT)
Rangers 3 Stars 2
Canucks 2 Blues 1
Capitals 3 Maple Leafs 2
New York had not led in the game until Nash poked a rebound beyond Kari Lehtonen to decide the 3-2 win.
There were just over eight minutes left in the third period at the Verizon Center when Joel Ward scored the goal-ahead goal and Alex Ovechkin duly chipped in with a goal and an assist to lift the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Michael Grabner fired the New York Islanders to a 2-1 overtime win against the Colorado Avalanche at the Pepsi Center. It was a third straight victory for the Islanders and a sixth consecutive away triumph.
Later on Friday the Vancouver Canucks snapped a five-game losing streak as Mike Santorelli scored the tiebreaking goal in a 2-1 victory over the St Louis Blues while, at Rexall Place, the Edmonton Oilers edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3.
