ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- R.J. Umberger scored two goals, one on a power play with 21 seconds left in the second period to send the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-1 victory over the stumbling Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Defenseman James Wisniewski had an empty-net goal in the final minute and added an assist in his first time back from a 17-game absence because of an ankle injury. Rick Nash assisted on both of Umberger's goals to give the NHL-worst Blue Jackets their second win this week against the Wild.

Devin Setoguchi had a goal for the second straight game for Minnesota.
