Jack Johnson scored the winner in the ninth round of a shootout and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 39 shots in regulation and eight in the tiebreaker to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Johnson faked a forehand and then jammed in a backhand before Bobrovsky clinched the win by blocking Bryan Bickell's low attempt.

It was the sixth game in a row to go past regulation for the Blue Jackets, who have a nine-game point streak (8-0-1).

Jack Skille and Kevin Connauton scored goals for Columbus. Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith tallied for the Blackhawks, and Corey Crawford made 17 saves.

The Blue Jackets ended a 13-game losing streak (0-10-3) to the Blackhawks.
