PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (AP) – Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 37 shots for his fourth shutout of the season, leading the Blue Jackets to their first win in Philadelphia, 2-0 over the Flyers on Thursday night.

James Wisniewski and Brandon Dubinsky each scored goals for the Blue Jackets, who were 0-5-1 in Philadelphia since the franchise’s inception in 2000.

Led by Bobrovsky, a former Flyer, the Blue Jackets moved closer to clinching their second-ever playoff berth. They closed within two points of the Flyers for third place in the Metropolitan Divison.

The Flyers have lost three straight games and were shut out for the second straight time.
