Jones scores twice, surging Blue Jackets beat Canadiens 5-2

Drouin scored on a breakaway — spurned by a blocked shot — at 15:46 of the second with a backhander to pull the Canadiens within two.

Cole capped the scoring with a floating wrister with 2:19 left in the game.

“We just feel good about ourselves and the way we’re playing hockey,” Jenner said. “You can see tonight if we play the way we can, we can kind of dominate teams.”

Capitals fans who have watched Ovechkin shine as the most productive goal scorer of the past decade-plus gave him a standing ovation for almost a minute after he reached the mark. Chants of “Ovi! Ovi!” continued as he waved from the bench in the moments after and during a video montage at the next timeout.

“I’d like to see our guys do a much better job when it comes to fronting pucks,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said. “Lindy had a bit of a tough night, and your best penalty killer can also be your goaltender.”

Early in the second period, not long after Zach Werenski saved a goal by swiping away the puck before it could cross the goal line, Jenner stuffed home his own rebound, the entire play nicely set up by Wennberg.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard will not play Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans.

“He’s got to be cleared by his medical staff that he’s seeing. And until he gets cleared, we can’t make a decision on when he’s coming back,” Popovich said. “So once he gets cleared, then he and I can sit down and talk, and see what we think about an appropriate time to come back. But that clearance has to be obtained first.”

Popovich, who said the team will continue to err on the side of caution when it comes to Leonard’s injury, said he has seen the forward work out, but Leonard “needs a little bit more work.”

He joined the National Society of Black Engineers and threw his weight Cheap Bike Jerseys behind, a non-profit that advocates for computer coding in schools.
