Curtis McElhinney makes 20 saves in Jackets' 4-0 win over Wild

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and R.J. Umberger scored and Curtis McElhinney posted his first shutout since 2011 in leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.

It was the Blue Jackets' second win in a row, the first time they've won back-to-back games since Oct. 25.

They did it in their first game without last year's Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie, Sergei Bobrovsky, who will miss the next month or so with a strained groin.

McElhinney made 20 saves in his first shutout since Feb. 5, 2011, while with the Anaheim Ducks.

Foligno and Umberger each also had assists and Ryan Johansen added two assists.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
