Ryan Johansen scored a disputed goal in the fourth round of the shootout to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.

Johansen's shot initially was ruled a rebound, but a video review showed that Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper did not touch the puck, making it a legal shootout goal.

With the win, Columbus stayed one point ahead of Philadelphia in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, while Minnesota pushed its lead over Dallas to five points in the race for seventh in the West.

The shootout capped a night of brilliant goaltending from the Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky and Minnesota's Kuemper. Bobrovsky stopped 32 of 33 shots through overtime, while Kuemper finished with 28 saves.

In the shootout, Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu scored for Minnesota, but Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu rallied the Blue Jackets to set up Johansen's clincher.
