COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sergei Bobrovsky, replacing an ineffective Steve Mason, made two spectacular short-handed saves in overtime and stopped both shots he faced in the shootout to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Vinny Prospal had a goal and an assist, and Derek MacKenzie and Jack Johnson also scored in regulation. Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu scored in the shootout for Columbus, which extended its points streak to four games and is the last team to win back-to-games in the NHL this season.

Jeff Petry, Ryan Whitney and Magnus Paajarvi tallied for Edmonton, who couldn't hold a 3-2 lead and fell to 1-3-1 on season-high nine-game, 17-day road trip in which they've been outshot 111-67.
