COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Scott Hartnell and Josh Anderson each scored two goals and Columbus Blue Jackets broke their scoring record in a 10-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves, and Seth Jones and David Savard added goals to help the Blue Jackets improve to 5-3-1. Columbus’ previous record offensive output in a game was eight goals.

After surrendering 13 goals in 10 games before Friday, Montreal gave up eight to Columbus in the first two periods, half of them on power plays. Sixteen Columbus players picked up at least one point.

The Canadiens dropped to 9-1-1 with their first regulation loss of the season.
