COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Nick Foligno and Brandon Dubinsky each had three assists, and the last-place Columbus Blue Jackets beat the NHL-best Dallas Stars 6-3 on Tuesday night.

Boone Jenner, Kevin Connauton, Matt Calvert, Brandon Saad, Scott Hartnell and Rene Bourque scored for Columbus, which had lost three straight and eight of 10 -- prompting coach John Tortorella to call out his team over the past several days.

Curtis McElhinney made 39 saves, and 11 players had at least one point for the Blue Jackets.

Colton Sceviour, Tyler Seguin and Patrick Sharp scored for Dallas. The Stars had their five-game point streak snapped (4-0-1).

Kari Lehtonen allowed three goals on 14 shots in the first period and was replaced by Antti Niemi to start the second. Niemi finished with 18 saves.
