COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 9 (UPI) -- Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves to log his first career NHL shutout Saturday and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat Detroit 3-0 to conclude a successful home stand.

Nick Foligno, Cam Atkinson and Jack Johnson each scored for Columbus, which took the season series from Detroit for the first time in the franchise's 13-year history.

Jonas Gustavsson stopped 21-of-24 shots for Detroit, which lost for only the third time in eight games.
