COLUMBUS — Jack Johnson’s power-play goal with 2:38 left lifted 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 added an assist. Ryan Johanson also had a goal for Columbus, 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.

The Blue Jackets had a man advantage for the sixth time after Tyler Johnson was called for hooking with 3:28 remaining. Just 50 seconds later, James Wisniewski fed Johnson for a hard shot that beat Lindback through heavy traffic in front.

Johnson had gone 42 games without a goal.
