Umberger helps Blue Jackets beat Senators 4-1
COLUMBUS 4, OTTAWA 1

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) -- Nick Floigno and the Columbus Blue
Jackets simply outmanned the Ottawa Senators.

Ryan Johansen, R.J. Umberger and Fedor Tyutin each scored
power-play goals, leading the Blue Jackets over Ottawa 4-1 on
Sunday.

Special teams were clearly the difference in this game. Ottawa
was 0-for-5 with the man advantage, scoring its only goal on a
5-on-3.

"Our power play was huge and our penalty kill was great," said
Floigno, who played his first game against the Senators since
being traded to Columbus in July 2012. "This was a big win for
our team and gives us confidence."

Derek MacKenzie also scored for Columbus (7-10-3), and Sergei
Bobrovsky stopped 30 shots.

"When your goalie's making big saves you want to work for him at
the other end and get some goals," Johansen said. "Everybody was
really good."

Erik Karlsson scored the lone goal for the Senators (8-8-4) in
the third period. Craig Anderson made 18 saves.

A brawl broke out in the third period after Ottawa's Mark
Borowiecki caught Jared Boll with his head down. James
Wisniewski quickly came to his teammate's defense and fought
Borowiecki. The two were tossed from the game once the penalties
were sorted out.

"I was just trying to finish a check," Borowiecki said. "I would
never want to hurt someone or put someone in jeopardy physically
or anything like that. I was just trying to make a hard play and
what happened, happened."

The small matinee crowd of 15,535 grew quiet after the Blue
Jackets grabbed a 3-0 lead with two goals in the second period.

Senators coach Paul MacLean said he is struggling to understand
how his team can play so well one night and so poorly the next.

"At some point and time when you hit 30 (games) you are what you
are, and if this is what we are as an inconsistent group, it's
not going to be much fun," MacLean said.

"We'll examine all that stuff and we'll see if we need to make
changes, but we need to do something," he said. "At the end of
the day, it comes down to the guys wearing the sweaters. They
have to be ready to play."

Umberger managed to get his stick on the rebound after Johansen
took a shot from inside the blue line. Then the Blue Jackets
made the most of a two-man advantage when Tyutin scored his
second of the season at 12:07.

MacKenzie put the game away when he made it 4-0 with his second
goal at the five-minute mark of the third.

The Senators finally solved Bobrovsky when Karlsson scored his
seventh of the season with Ottawa enjoying a two-man advantage
at 17:33 of the third.

"We can't keep battling back every game because it's not going
to work," Karlsson said. "We're 20 games in and it seems like
there's a lot of games left to be played, but if we don't start
showing up soon it's going to be over quick."

NOTES: D Patrick Wiercioch, D Joe Corvo and forward Matt Kassian
were healthy scratches for the Senators. ... Forward Jack Skille
and D Dalton Prout were healthy scratches for the Blue Jackets.
