Columbus’ Cam Atkinson collides with Edmonton’s Andrej Sekera. Columbus won 3-1.

December. The Blue Jackets haven’t lost since Nov. 26.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Cam Atkinson and William Karlsson scored power-play goals and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 on Tuesday night to extend their winning streak to 16 games — one away from the longest ever in the NHL. Nick Foligno also scored for the Blue Jackets, who can tie the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins with a victory Thursday night at Washington. The near-sellout crowd chanted “We want 16!” as the clock ticked down. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21 shots for Columbus, which started the new year on the right note after winning all 14 games in

Captains named for All-Star Game • Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens, Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers and P.K. Subban of the Nashville Predators were voted as divisional captains for the 3-on-3 tournament at the NHL AllStar Game on Jan. 29. Crosby will captain the Metropolitan Division, Price the Atlantic, McDavid the Pacific and Subban the Central, if he’s healthy. Subban has been out since Dec. 15 with a lower-body injury and is expected to miss more time.

Kawhi Leonard had 25 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 23 and the host San Antonio Spurs beat Toronto 110-82 on Tuesday night, holding the Raptors to their lowest score of the season. San Antonio dominated a matchup of teams with the second-best record in each conference, leading by as many as 34 points. Leonard and Aldridge combined to shoot 19 for 28 from the field, but it was veteran point guard Tony Parker who set the tone for the Spurs. Parker finished with 15 points and eight assists in 23 minutes. After scoring the game’s opening basket on a floater, Parker drove the lane and tossed the ball out to Aldridge and Pau Gasol for mid-range jumpers and to Danny Green for a 3-pointer. The Spurs raced to a 26-10 lead in the opening eight minutes, and the Raptors never recovered.

NOTEBOOK Pelicans, Motiejunas agree on contract • The New Orleans Pelicans say free-agent 7-footer Donatas Motiejunas has signed to play the rest of this season. A person familiar with the negotations, speaking on condition of anonymity because contract terms have not been released, told The Associated Press that Motiejunas will be paid a pro-rated veteran minimum worth about $600,000. Motiejunas, who’ll now have an opportunity to play in the front court alongside perennial All-Star Anthony Davis, has played four seasons in the NBA with Houston, averaging 7.8 points and four rebounds. As a restricted free agent last ofseason, he signed an offer sheet from Brooklyn for about $36 million over four years, but

Houston initially sought to match it, only to allow the 26-year-old Lithuanian to become an unrestricted free agent after negotiations broke down. Hornets waive Harrison • The Charlotte Hornets’ 1½-season Aaron Harrison experiment is over. The Hornets are waiving Harrison, avoiding a guarantee of his season salary of more than $874,000, an informed source confirmed. The Hornets signed Harrison, a 6-6 guard out of Kentucky, after he wasn’t taken in the 2015 NBA draft.He spent much of this season on Development League assignment with the Greensboro Swarm. He averaged 20.2 points and 3.6 assists with the Swarm. (Charlotte Observer)
