Ryan Miller made 31 saves for his second consecutive shutout, his third of the season and 32nd of his career, and the streaking Vancouver Canucks topped the struggling Columbus Blue Jackets 5-0 on Friday night.

Columbus couldn't muster anything against Miller, who extended his scoreless run to 152 minutes, 5 seconds. The Canucks are tied for first in the Western Conference with 33 points, propelled by a 6-1-1 run.

Miller is tied for the NHL lead with 15 wins.

Chris Higgins and Brad Richardson both had a goal and an assist for Vancouver, which played the first game of a season-high, seven-game, 12-day road trip.
