GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) – Nathan Horton scored in his Blue Jackets debut, Curtis McElhinney made 34 saves for his second shutout of the season, and Columbus beat the sluggish Phoenix Coyotes 2-0 Thursday night.

R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who snapped a two-game losing streak amid a burst of energy provided by Horton, Columbus’ $37 million offseason free-agent acquisition.

Horton, the ex-Boston Bruins winger who missed the first 40 games following shoulder surgery, poked in a rebound late in the second period for his 199th career goal.

Umberger added a second power-play goal midway through the final period.

Mike Smith stopped 29 shots for the Coyotes, who were shut out for the first time this season and saw their streak of six straight overtime games snapped.
