Zach Werenski and Artemi Panarin each scored a goal, Sergei Bobrovsky posted his second shutout of the season and the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the New York Rangers 2-0 in the National Hockey League at Nationwide Arena.
The Blue Jackets (12-7-1) won their third straight game and Bobrovsky has been in goal for all three, allowing a combined two goals. Bobrovsky finished with 36 saves against the Rangers for his 11th win of the season.
Henrik Lundqvist made 40 stops for New York. Brandon Dubinsky, Boone Jenner and Oliver Bjorkstrand each had an assist for the Blue Jackets.
Meanwhile, Blue Jackets signed right winger Cam Atkinson to a seven-year, $41.125mn contract extension that will run through the 2024-25 season. The contract has an average annual value of $5.875mn, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced on Friday.
Atkinson, 28, owns 233 points (125 goals, 108 assists) and 106 penalty minutes in 397 career NHL games, all with the Blue Jackets. He ranks second in team history in goals and game-winning goals (25), fourth in points, seventh in games played and 10th in assists.

Red Wings 3, Sabres 1

Tomas Tatar’s fifth goal of the season, 8:36 into the third period, snapped a 1-1 tie and propelled the Detroit Red Wings a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. With Wings forward Justin Abdelkader screening Sabres goalie Robin Lehner, Tatar’s long wrist shot from just inside the blue line banked off the top of Lehner’s pad and into the net.
Dylan Larkin added an insurance goal when he knocked the rebound of a Xavier Ouellet shot past Lehner with 4:06 to play in the third period. Luke Glendening also scored for the Wings (10-8-2) while Ryan O’Reilly replied for the Sabres (5-10-4). The victory ended Detroit’s four-game losing streak against Buffalo.

Red Wings’ DeKeyser injured
The Detroit Red Wings placed defenseman Danny DeKeyser on long-term injured reserve, the team announced. The move is retroactive to Oct. 10, the last time DeKeyser played in the third game of the season.
He was injured when the puck struck his ankle from close range. In a corresponding move, the Red Wings recalled defenseman Brian Lashoff from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.
The Toronto Maple Leafs agreed to terms with forward Josh Leivo on a one-year contract extension worth $925,000, the team announced. Leivo, 24, has one assist in five games for the Maple Leafs this season.
