Forward Cam Atkinson scored two goals, his 31st and 32nd of the season, to help the Columbus Blue Jackets defeat the Flyers 5-3 in Philadelphia Monday night.

Zach Werenski had a goal (10th) and an assist (33rd) for Columbus and Seth Jones contributed two assists (28th and 29th) as the Blue Jackets won their 44th game of the season and hit the 94-point mark, both single-season franchise records. Their previous records were 43 wins and 93 points, set in 2013-14. Brandon Dubinsky scored the game-winning goal Monday, breaking a 3-3 tie with his 10th of the season at 8:46 of the third period. Sam Gagner had the first goal of the night, giving Columbus a 1-0 lead with his 18th goal of the season at 7:42 of the first period.

Cam Atkinson escaped with just a cut after Marcus Foligno's skate sliced open his shoulder blade.

Atkinson was taken to the dressing room and 17 stitches were required to close the cut. He returned to action and almost tied the game with less than a minutes to go but a great save by Robin Lehner preserved the win for Buffalo. "I definitely have a couple of guardian angels looking out for me," said Atkinson. "I got a skate to the face a couple of years ago and it didn't touch my eye. This, it could have been my neck, it could have been other damage, nerve damage. I've got to just count my lucky stars." Atkinson is having a career year as he has 30 goals and 57 points. With 15 games left in the season, both are already career highs.

Cam Atkinson reached the 30-goal milestone on Tuesday.

Atkinson is the seventh Columbus player to ever enjoy a 30-goal campaign. He still has an outside chance of reaching the 40-goal mark too, which would make him the second Blue Jackets player to accomplish that feat after Rick Nash did it in 2003-04 and 2008-09.
Mar 8 - 8:30 AM

Cam Atkinson is on the brink of pulling off a rare feat for a Blue Jackets player: A 30-goal season.

Atkinson is currently sitting at the 29-goal mark. Assuming he does find the back of the net at least one more time, he'll become the seventh Columbus player to ever do so. Rick Nash is the only Blue Jackets player to ever reach the 40-goal mark, having done so in 2003-04 and 2008-09.

Cam Atkinson snapped his five-game goal drought with a pair of tallies in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

Feb 26 - 9:03 PM

Cam Atkinson's line, with Brandon Dubinsky and Boone Jenner, has amassed six goals and 14 points in the last five games.

Atkinson has scored three times over that span to hit 27 goals for the second straight season. The rest of the team has three goals during that five-game stretch. "Our line has taken over a little bit as far as working hard and trying to gain momentum and scoring goals and having success," Atkinson said. "It's great right now but all of us are going to have to contribute. When we do, it's going to be crazy."

Cam Atkinson matched his career high of 27 goals with a tally in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Red Wings.

Feb 11 - 8:08 PM

John Tavares wasn't the only player to notch two goals and four points during Sunday's 10-6 All-Star game victory over the Atlantic.
