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 seven 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.
