NHL: Columbus 1, Phoenix 0 (SO)

March 16, 2013 at 10:27 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 16 (UPI) -- Sergei Bobrovsky logged his second career shutout Saturday and Columbus kept its club-record points streak going with a 1-0 shootout win over Phoenix.

Bobrovsky turned aside all 39 shots he faced in regulation and overtime and added another on Oliver Ekman-Larsson's shot in the tiebreaker to secure the victory.

Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu, meanwhile, tallied against the Coyotes' Mike Smith in the shootout as the Blue Jackets recorded their fourth straight win -- all via the post-regulation tiebreaker.

The decision gave them at least one point in 10 consecutive games (6-0-4), a franchise record.

Smith finished with 23 saves as Phoenix was blanked in a second straight contest.
