Jackets beat Rangers in SO
New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Mark Letestu scored the winner in the shootout as the Columbus Blue Jackets took a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers on Monday.
Letestu buried a wrister past Henrik Lundqvist on Columbus' first shot and Sergei Bobrovsky made a nice save on a backhand offering from Rick Nash. Ryan Johansen then sealed the win as he faked to the backhand and lifted it high over Lundqvist.
Brandon Dubinsky and James Wisniewski both had a goal and an assist, while Cam Atkinson also scored for the Blue Jackets, who have won two of three.
Bobrovsky played for the first time since straining his groin on Dec. 3 against Tampa Bay. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner, who had served as the backup the past two games, stopped 40 shots in the win
Nash had two goals while Brian Boyle scored the other for the Rangers, who had won three of four coming in. Lundqvist stopped 36 shots in the loss.
