Wild continue hot streak, beat Blue Jackets, 5-0 .
COLUMBUS, Ohio - As commanding as the Wild's drubbing of the Red Wings was Thursday in Detroit, it was also a game a squad fighting for its playoff life should win over the last-place team in the NHL. But what wasn't as clear-cut was being just as competitive the next night against a rested opponent also vying for a wild-card berth. And that's why the Wild's encore Friday was more impressive than what they accomplished the previous evening, because the team rolled into Columbus and blitzed the Blue Jackets, 5-0, in front of 18,955 at Nationwide Arena to pocket its fifth straight win on the road and fifth in its last six games overall.
