NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Artem Anisimov scored with 6:25 remaining in the third period and Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 1-0 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

It was Bobrovsky's third shutout of the season for Columbus, which has won four of five.

With the game still scoreless, James Wisniewski sent a pass from the left circle to Anisimov at the left faceoff dot. Anisimov carried the puck to the goal line before cutting toward the Nashville net and sliding a backhander by Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne just inside the far post.

The Predators have lost four in a row and seven of their last eight.

Making his third consecutive start after being sidelined since late October with an infection in his hip, Rinne made 35 saves.
