COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sergei Bobrovsky picked up his fourth career shutout — all in his last 15 games — and newcomer Marian Gaborik had a goal and an assist Tuesday night, leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Matt Calvert, James Wisniewski and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets, who had lost their last two games.

Bobrovsky didn't have a shutout in his first 98 NHL appearances. He has out up a brick wall in front of the net since Columbus went on a late tear to rise from last in the league to contention for a playoff spot. He made 30 saves, including stopping Patrick Marleau's point-blank wrister in the third period and Dan Boyle's hard, power-play slap shot in the second.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
