TORONTO, Ont. – Dalton Prout and Artem Anisimov scored second-period goals, and the Blue Jackets held off the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Monday night for their second straight win.

Prout, a defenseman, and Anisimov scored less than three minutes apart for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves in the win. The Blue Jackets completed a three-game season sweep of Toronto.

Mason Raymond had the lone goal for Toronto, bringing the Maple Leafs within a goal with 4:15 remaining. Toronto made a late flurry after goalie James Reimer was pulled for an extra skater, but couldn’t tie it.

Reimer made 31 saves.

Toronto dropped its third straight since the Winter Olympics. The Maple Leafs had won seven consecutive at home, their best stretch there since a nine-game run in the 2006-07 season.
