COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Cam Atkinson scored two goals _ giving him five in five periods _ to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 7-3 victory on Saturday over the New York Islanders in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Rick Nash opened the scoring in what could be his final game for the Blue Jackets. He has asked for a trade and management has said it will try to deal him this summer.

James Wisniewski and Vinny Prospal each added a goal and two assists and R.J. Umberger and Jack Johnson also scored. Steve Mason made 35 saves. Atkinson also had an assist.

Milan Jurcina and Michael Grabner each had a goal and an assist for the Islanders, with Kyle Okposo also scored.
