COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Cam Atkinson scored twice in the third period and Boone Jenner had a goal and an assist while the Columbus Blue Jackets held off the Detroit Red Wings 5-3 Tuesday night.

David Clarkson and David Savard also scored for the Jackets, and Joonas Korpisalo made 32 saves. Atkinson’s empty-netter with 17.5 seconds left secured the win.

Tomas Tatar and Andreas Athanasiou scored 46 seconds apart late in the third to pull Detroit within 4-3. Darren Helm thought he’d tied it less than a minute later, but the puck careened off the post behind Korpisalo.

Justin Abdelkader also scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard made 27 saves.
