Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - Artem Anisimov scored the winner in the shootout to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

Anisimov lifted a backhander off the crossbar on the first chance of the shootout and, after Sergei Bobrovsky made stops on Sam Gagner and Ales Hemsky, Mark Letestu buried the puck in the back of the net for the win.

Vinny Prospal posted a goal and an assist while Derek MacKenzie and Jack Johnson each scored for the Blue Jackets, who have won two in a row since losing four straight.

Steve Mason started in net for Columbus, but was yanked early in the second period after giving up three goals on eight shots. Bobrovsky stopped all 21 shots he faced in relief to get the win.

Jeff Petry, Ryan Whitney and Magnus Paajarvi all scored for the Oilers, who have dropped their past three. Devan Dubnyk gave up three goals on 38 shots in the loss.
