COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Sergei Bobrovsky kept Columbus in the game, and a lucky goal in the second period was enough for the Blue Jackets.

Bobrovsky made 36 saves in his seventh shutout of the season, helping Columbus beat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 on Saturday.

The Russian goalie was terrific in his NHL-leading 40th win, and Alexander Wennberg tipped in the game's only goal. The gritty victory in front of a sellout crowd broke a two-game losing streak for the playoff-bound Blue Jackets (48-19-7) and moved them into a tie with idle Pittsburgh for second in the Metropolitan Division.
