Columbus, Ohio • Mark Letestu redirected Jack Johnson's shot from the point with 2:38 left, lifting the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night.

It was the Blue Jackets' season-high fourth win in a row.

Nathan Horton scored his 200th NHL goal, also on the power play, and Ryan Johansen had a goal for Columbus, which is 5-1 in the new year. Sergei Bobrovsky had 26 saves.

Alex Killorn and Victor Hedman had goals for Tampa Bay, and Anders Lindback stopped 25 shots.

Tampa Bay had been 17-1 when leading after two periods.

Flames 2, Hurricanes 0 • In Raleigh, N.C., Karri Ramo made 22 saves in his first NHL shutout, and Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan provided the offense in Calgary's win over Carolina.

The Flames snapped a three-game losing streak and handed the Hurricanes their second straight shutout defeat.

Jets 5, Coyotes 1 • In Winnipeg, Manitoba, the host Jets found the energy they had lacked for weeks and made new coach Paul Maurice a winner in his debut behind the bench by routing Phoenix.

Olli Jokinen, Eric O'Dell, Blake Wheeler, Michael Frolik and Devin Setoguchi scored for the Jets (20-23-5), who held a 38-19 shots advantage.

Maurice took over after Claude Noel was fired on Sunday, ending his 2 ½ years as the Jets' coach. EASTERN CONFERENCE
