Boone Jenner and Anthony Duclair scored twice apiece Thursday night for the Columbus Blue Jackets, who overcame an early two-goal deficit to beat the host St. Louis Blues, 7-4.

The two-goal game was the seventh of Jenner's career and his first since he scored twice against the New Jersey Devils on March 19, 2017. Duclair scored multiple goals for the third time and the first time since he collected a hat trick against the Ottawa Senators on Nov. 18, 2017.

David Savard, Josh Anderson and Seth Jones also scored for the Blue Jackets, who scored their most goals since a 7-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on March 27.

Goalie Joonas Korpisalo recorded 33 saves as Columbus snapped a two-game losing streak.

Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen and Zach Sanford scored for the Blues, who allowed their most goals since an 8-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Feb. 27.

Jake Allen stopped 17 of 21 shots for the Blues before he was pulled following Savard's goal. Backup Chad Johnson allowed three goals on 11 shots in relief as St. Louis fell for the fifth time in six games.

Tarasenko and Schwartz scored within the first 13 minutes to stake the Blues to the early multi-goal advantage.

But Jenner's first goal, a power-play score with 3:13 left in the first, began a run of four unanswered goals in fewer than 13 minutes for the Blue Jackets, who tied the game and took the lead when Duclair and Jenner scored 85 seconds apart early in the second.

Savard extended the Blue Jackets' lead to 4-2 at the 8:58 mark of the second before Steen pulled the Blues within a goal by scoring with 8:30 remaining. But Columbus put the game away with a three-goal flurry by Anderson, Duclair and Jones within the first 6:03 of the third.

Sanford scored for the Blues with 7:24 left.
