Mason Raymond's shootout goal, Roberto Luongo's 26 saves lift Canucks past Blue Jackets 2-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Mason Raymond scored the only goal in the shootout, and seldom-used Roberto Luongo stopped 26 shots through overtime to lead the Vancouver Canucks past the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Luongo, playing in his second game in 16 days, stopped all three Blue Jackets in the shootout.

Raymond, shooting second for Vancouver, scored when he came to a quick stop, got goalie Sergei Bobrovsky on the ice, and then easily tapped a backhander into the net.

Jason Garrison had the lone goal for the Canucks, who had lost four straight (0-2-2).

Mark Letestu scored the lone regulation goal for the Blue Jackets, who matched a franchise record by earning a point in an eighth consecutive game (5-0-3). Their five-game winning streak ended, one short of tying the franchise mark.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
