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.
