Merzlikins leads Blue Jackets' rout of New Jersey

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Elvis Merzlikins felt he was pretty lucky, especially near the end.

The Columbus Blue Jackets feel pretty fortunate every time he steps on the ice.

Merzlikins made a career-high 41 saves in his third shutout in his last four starts, and the Blue Jackets beat the New Jersey Devils 5-0 on Saturday night for their fourth straight win.
