Bobrovsky gets 3rd straight shutout as Jackets blank Devs

With All-Star Sergei Bobrovsky in the net, a team can get away with some not-so-energetic play from time to time.


Bobrovsky made 33 saves for his third consecutive shutout and the Columbus Blue Jackets handed the New Jersey Devils their eighth straight loss with a 2-0 victory on Tuesday night. Columbus did it despite being outshot and outplayed for most of the game.

Bobrovsky shut out the Devils for the second time in three days as he made 20 saves in a 3-0 win on Sunday.
