Bobrovsky stops 41 shots as Blue Jackets beat Sabres 3-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets struggled on the power-play again, but they keep finding ways to do just enough to win.

The Blue Jackets managed just three shots and no goals on three power plays in Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Buffalo and haven't scored with a man-advantage since March 13. That's becoming a concern as they battle their Metropolitan League foes down the stretch for home-ice advantage in the playoffs.

Cam Atkinson got his team-leading 34th goal and eighth game-winner of the season, and Sergei Bobrovsky had 41 saves to power the Blue Jackets.
