COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Nick Foligno scored twice, Cam Atkinson added a late power-play goal, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 45 saves to help the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Nashville Predators 3-2 in the preseason finale for both teams Saturday night.
Atkinson scored with five minutes left in regulation for a two-goal lead.
James Neal scored for Nashville during a two-man advantage with 1:33 remaining, but the Predators couldn't get the equalizer against Bobrovsky, who denied Mike Ribeiro's penalty shot earlier.
Eric Nystrom had the other goal for the Predators.
Columbus finished 7-1-0 to set a team record for most preseason wins. Nashville was 3-3-0.
