COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Steve Mason stopped 18 shots for his NHL-leading seventh shutout of the season, making fellow rookie Jake Voracek's second-period goal stand up in a 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.
Mason, who didn't start the season with the Blue Jackets, is 19-11-2 with a league-best 1.98 goals-against average in 32 games. He's fifth in save percentage (.928), has allowed two or fewer goals in 19 of his past 27 starts - and has turned the sad-sack Blue Jackets into playoff contenders for the first time in their eight years.
Voracek redirected Michael Peca's shot from the point at 3:55 of the second period.

Bobby Holik and Brendan Shanahan also scored. Sidney Crosby, Maxime Talbot and Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh. The Penguins blew a two-goal lead in the final 8:01.
