y World Cup champion Spain on Thur

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- With a fierce forecheck and an efficient power play, the Columbus Blue Jackets made up for a blowout in Edmonton last week. Rene Robert Avalanche Jersey . Ryan Johansen had a goal and an assist for his third multipoint game this season to lead the Blue Jackets past the Oilers 4-2 on Friday night. "We had more motivation and obviously didnt like the way things went down in Edmonton," said Nick Foligno, who also scored to help Columbus win for only the second time in its last eight home games. Artem Anisimov and Jack Skille each had a goal for the Blue Jackets, who dominated the pace -- until Edmonton scored twice in the third period -- and erased the memory of that 7-0 defeat on Nov. 19. "It felt great," said Matt Calvert, who added two assists. "You still feel it. It was embarrassing. We wanted to come back in our building and especially get a win in front of our fans and beat these guys up." Sergei Bobrovsky made 25 saves for Columbus. He outplayed fellow Russian and former Philadelphia Flyers teammate Ilya Bryzgalov, who stopped 19 shots and was replaced by Devan Dubnyk at the start of the third period. Signed on Nov. 8, Bryzgalov made his second start for Edmonton after shutting out Nashville 3-0 on Thanksgiving. "We werent ready to go right out of the gate," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said. "Even though I thought we slowly fought back, there was just a lot of head-shaking moments on our bench. Not only from the coaches but the players themselves." Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle scored for the speedy Oilers, who had won four of five. But they slowed themselves with several penalties and might have been tired while playing for the second consecutive night. Edmonton took four penalties in the second period that added up to 2 minutes for the Blue Jackets with a two-man advantage -- and two power-play goals. A third Columbus goal in the period came on a delayed penalty. Columbus plan to crash the net led to the games first goal. On a dump-in by Calvert and then pressure from Cam Atkinson, Johansen snagged the puck out of traffic, curled into the low slot and roofed his team-leading ninth of the season at 7:50 of the first period. "I was pleased with the energy we came out with and that we played with," Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said. The Blue Jackets made it 4-0 with three goals in the second period. The Oilers got into immediate penalty trouble by taking minors for tripping, delay of game and holding in a span of 1:35. "Wed been struggling on the 5-on-3 lately," Calvert said. "It was awesome to get a goal. It kind of gave the bench a boost and we went from there." Anisimov, positioned near the crease, got his stick blade on a pass from Calvert for his seventh at 3:44. "When you get down on 5-on-3 and especially long ones, those are usually going to end up in your net," Eakins said. About 7 minutes later, with Edmonton back in the box, Foligno pushed home his sixth with Ryan Smyth draped on his back on a nice pass from Boone Jenner to make it 3-0. "Weve practiced it but havent really used it much," Foligno said of the play. "It worked out well. Its always good to make them pay on the power play." Late in the period, Skille took it the distance and snapped an impressive shot from the right circle past Bryzgalov. "I was thinking, just get by that D and make sure to have a quick release on the shot," Skille said. Edmonton tried to creep back into the game in the third period. "I wanted to see us come out and continue to play a hard game (in the third) and make it difficult on them," Richards said. "We went the opposite direction. We took some penalties and it gave them some life." Gagner scored with a long shot along the goal line that sneaked past Bobrovksy at 10:36. Eberle followed with his team-best 10th about 5 minutes later, scoring from the left circle through a screen on the power play.

The Brazilian federation said Monday that defender David Luiz and defensive midfielder Paulinho will recover from injuries in time for the decisive match in Belo Horizonte. Paulinho missed the group stage match against Italy because of a left ankle sprain, while David Luiz was replaced in the first half because of a right leg injury. Brazil beat Italy 4-2 to win Group A and set up the matchup with the regional rivals. Italy will play World Cup champion Spain on Thursday. The hosts have won two consecutive Confederations Cups, and three overall. It hasnt won a significant competition since the 2009 title in South Africa. Paulinho, touted to move to Tottenham when the transfer window opens in July, injured his ankle in Brazils second game in the World Cup warm-up competition, against Mexico. Doctors said he would have been able to play against Italy, but Brazil had already secured a place in the semifinals in advance and Scolari decided to keep him out so he could fully recover for the semifinal. Chelsea defender David Luiz had been doubtful to start against Italy after breaking his nose against the Mexicans, but the injury didnt keep him from playing. What kept him from finishing the match was a bruised right leg sustained early in the game. He had to leave the field before halftime and the injury was still bothering him on Sunday. Rene Bourque Avalanche Jersey. . Reserve striker Bernard injured his right foot in the teams first training session ahead of the match at the Mineirao, but both David Luiz and Paulinho practiced regularly. They are considered key for the Brazilian defence when the team faces some of the tournaments top strikers in Diego Forlan, Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez. "They are all very good strikers, they can be decisive," Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar said on Monday. "We will need all the help we can get because we will be playing against a very strong attack. We will have to be very careful because they can decide the match in the blink of an eye." The Brazilian defence did well in the opener against Japan and in the second match against Mexico, keeping their attackers at bay and not conceding any goals. But without Paulinho and David Luiz against Italys attack led by Mario Balotelli, the Brazilians conceded two goals. Brazil hadnt conceded goals in three straight matches, including in the friendly against France just before the Confederations Cup. "We let in the goals at the right time, they didnt matter much in the end," Julio Cesar said. "We have improved a lot in defence but we know that we still havent found the right balance. We have to keep working hard to improve in that area as well as in others." Uruguay is the defending South American champion but Brazil has won the last two times the teams faced each other, both in World Cup qualifiers in 2010.
