BLUE JACKETS 2, WILD 1, SO: Ryan Johansen scored a disputed goal in the fourth round of the shootout to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Minnesota Wild.
Johansen’s shot initially was ruled a rebound, but a video review showed that Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper did not touch the puck, making it a legal shootout goal.
The shootout capped a night of brilliant goaltending from the Blue Jackets’ Sergei Bobrovsky and Minnesota’s Kuemper.
Bobrovsky stopped 32 of 33 shots through overtime, while Kuemper finished with 28 saves.
In the shootout, Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu scored for Minnesota, but Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu rallied the Blue Jackets to set up Johansen’s clincher.
LIGHTNING 3, DEVILS 0: Ben Bishop stopped 23 shots to set Tampa Bay’s single-season record with 31 victories as the Lightning beat the New Jersey Devils.

Michael Kostka had a goal and an assist for Tampa Bay, which has won two in a row following a five-game losing streak (0-3-2).

Backup goalie Anders Nilsson (3-4-2) made 33 saves and earned the win in his 15th NHL game. He lost his shutout bid 56 seconds into the third when Tyler Ennis scored a power-play goal.
But the Islanders’ two-goal lead was restored 39 seconds later when Ryan Strome scored his fourth goal. Cal Clutterbuck added an empty-netter with 2:13 remaining.
BLUES 4, PREDATORS 1: Patrik Berglund scored twice to lead the St. Louis Blues past the Nashville Predators.
