NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Taylor Beck had a goal and an assist during Nashville's four-goal first period and the Predators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2 on Saturday night to win consecutive games for the first time in over a month.

Shea Weber, David Legwand and Matt Halischuk also scored in the opening period for Nashville. Roman Josi added an empty-netter in the closing seconds for the Predators, while Martin Erat, Gabriel Bourque and Bobby Butler each had a pair of assists.

R.J. Umberger and Artem Anisimov had the goals for the Blue Jackets, whose franchise-record streak of earning at least one point ended at 12 games.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped only 7 of the 11 shots he faced before being replaced midway through the first by Steve Mason, who had 12 saves the rest of the way.
