Alexander Wennberg scored the shootout winner as the Columbus Blue Jackets edged the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Wednesday.

David Savard, Ryan Johansen and Mark Letestu scored in regulation for the Blue Jackets (31-35-4), who have won four of their last five.

Derek Roy, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov had goals for the Oilers (19-39-13), who have lost eight of their last nine games.

The Oilers took a 3-2 lead midway through the third as an Oscar Klefbom shot came off the boards to Yakupov on the other side and he deposited his 12th of the season into the net.

Letestu responded for the Blue Jackets 54 seconds later, ripping a long shot off the post and in past Scrivens.
