COLUMBUS, Ohio — After the Columbus Blue Jackets' biggest offensive outburst of the season, forward Brandon Dubinsky was asked if he saw it coming.

"Something had to give, right?" he said.

Dubinsky had a goal and an assist and the Blue Jackets dominated against the NHL's stingiest defense in a 6-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.

James Wisniewski and Nikita Nikitin added goals, Cody Goloubef picked up his first NHL goal and Vinny Prospal and Mark Letestu tied a franchise record by scoring 8 seconds apart in the third period. Nick Foligno and Matt Calvert each had two assists.

No wonder San Jose coach Todd McLellan was fuming after the game when asked for a brief summation of went wrong.
