Kirill Marchenko scored three consecutive times, and the Columbus Blue Jackets enjoyed their most productive outing in more than seven years with a 9-4 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

It came at the expense of a spiraling team that left an unhappy fanbase booing the Sabres off the ice, and leading to first-time chants of “Fire Donnie,” directed at coach Don Granato.

Johnny Gaudreau had a goal and two assists, and Sean KuralyAdam FantilliCole Sillinger and Kent Johnson had a goal and assist apiece. Erik Gudbranson also scored in an outing the Blue Jackets broke open by scoring seven consecutive times over a 21:52 stretch spanning the first and second periods.
