Publish date:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Ticker) -- Manny Malhotra recorded two goals and

an assist to lead the Columbus Blue jackets to a wild, 5-4 win

over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

Raffi Torres added a goal and an assist and Jakub Voracek and

Jiri Novotny each notched a goal for the Blue Jackets, who

matched their offensive output for the previous four games


Columbus jumped out to a 3-1 lead on Malhotra's first goal, at

the 5:32 mark of the second period, only to watch the edge

disappear as the Kings grabbed a 4-3 lead with three unanswered

goals in the span of two minutes in the second.

Novotny's second goal of the season tied it with 2:42 left in

the second and Malhotra redirected a pass from Rick Nash past

Los Angeles goaltender Jon Quick at the 10:16 mark of the third.
