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

We've got a team filled with captains, that's what I think. With these first two games we got in, we're really dominating and moving the puck really fast, and it's worked out really good.
