GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Rick Nash had two goals and an assist and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-2 on Saturday night.
Nikita Nikitin and John Moore scored in the third period after the Coyotes rallied from a two-goal deficit to make it 2-2. Colton Gillies got an empty-net goal to cap the scoring for the Blue Jackets, who have won two in a row on the road for the first time this season.
Ray Whitney and Lauri Korpikoski scored for Phoenix. Shane Doan assisted on both goals.
Nash, whose wish to be traded went unfulfilled, has four goals in his last four games and six in his last seven.
After going 11-0-1 in February, the Coyotes have lost two in a row, both at home.
