COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rick Nash stretched his streak of multi-point games to four with a pair of assists 2:04 apart in the second period, and the Columbus Blue Jackets rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jackets (4-1), off to the best start in franchise history, made the most of a two-man advantage when former Flames Anton Stralman and Kristian Huselius scored.

Stralman scored his goal with a slap shot following a faceoff, and Huselius scored from in-close off a slick pass from Nash immediately after the second penalty expired.

Curtis Glencross scored for Calgary, which has lost three straight after opening the season with four wins. It was the second defeat in two nights for the Flames, who blew a five-goal lead at Chicago on Monday and lost 6-5 in overtime.
