COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Steve Mason stopped 34-of-35 shots and Ryan Johansen netted two goals Saturday, giving Columbus its third win of the year, 2-1 over Winnipeg.

The Jets pulled to within a goal late in the final period when Mark Stuart scored, but goalie Mason shut the door down the stretch, preserving the rare win for the Blue Jackets (3-12-1).

Mason made 13 of his saves in the final period.

The Jets, meanwhile, lost their fifth consecutive contest despite 25 saves from Ondrej Pavelec.

Columbus downed the Jets for the sixth straight time dating back to Dec. 9, 2005 -- a span of six games.
