Blue Jackets hold off surge by Islanders to win 6-4

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Columbus took a three-goal lead in the first period Thursday night, but Josh Bailey and the New York Islanders weren't going to go quietly.

The Islanders surged back to tie the game in the second period and trailed by only one for most of the third, but the Blue Jackets held on for a 6-4 win. Bailey got the first hat trick of his career in the losing effort.

"It's tough to come back and win hockey games when you get down by that much," Bailey said. "We battled, found a way to get our legs going and compete the rest of the way and make it close, but it was just frustrating the way we let it get away."
