hockey Blue Jackets’ Jones,

Atkinson lead in 5-1 win

• Seth Jones and Cam Atkinson each had a goal and two assists, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Washington Capitals 5-1 on Monday night.

Columbus scored four goals in the first period — two of them on power plays — in winning their second game in three days and the first in four tries against the Capitals this season. Artemi Panarin had a goal and an assist, and Sonny Milano and Mark Letestu — acquired by the Blue Jackets in a trade Sunday — also tallied.

Sergei Bobrovsky had 25 saves for the Blue Jackets, who held on to the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference with a knot of teams still in contention.

The Blue Jackets acquired defenseman Ian Cole from the Ottawa Senators for center Nick Moutrey and a 2020 third-round draft pick.

This is the second time in three days Cole has been moved. Ottawa acquired the 29-year-old Friday night from the Penguins in a deal that brought Derick Brassard to Pittsburgh.

• Nashville Predators forward Mike Fisher has made his return from a brief retirement official by signing a one-year, $1 million contract for the remainder of the season.

Fisher had announced Jan. 31 that he was planning to return to the Predators. The 6-foot-1 center had announced his retirement in August.

The Predators lost the Stanley Cup Final to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

U.S. Open changes to

2-hole aggregate playoff

• The U.S. Open is changing to a two-hole aggregate playoff, making it the last of the four majors to do away with an 18-hole playoff.

The change takes effect immediately and would be used at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island in June if there is a tie after 72 holes. The U.S. Golf Association also decided to make its other three open champions two-hole playoffs — the U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open and U.S. Senior Women’s Open.
