COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets roll into their long winter break after six weeks of solid play and a season-high six-game win streak.

Columbus went back and forth with the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night before Oliver Bjorkstrand's second goal of the game with 5:38 left gave the Blue Jackets the lead and young goalie Elvis Merzlikins held on the rest of the way to seal the 4-3 win.

It's been quite a turnaround for the Blue Jackets. They are 16-2-4 since Dec. 9 even though as many as 10 players were out with injuries at any one time - including Bjorkstrand, who has had a pair of two-goal games in a row since being sidelined 13 games with a rib/oblique injury.
