COLUMBUS, Ohio — Rookie Kyle Wilson scored on his first career shootout attempt to help the Columbus Blue Jackets end a five-game losing skid with a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.

Dallas' six-game winning streak was snapped.

Rick Nash, who also scored in the shootout for Columbus, tied the game with 46.1 seconds left in regulation with his 14th goal.

Steve Ott and Brad Richards had goals for the Stars, who were trying to match the franchise record of seven consecutive wins.

After Nash and Richards scored in the shootout, Wilson went third and used a hard forehand to beat Kari Lehtonen on the stick side.

Mathieu Garon then made a right toe save on Jamie Benn to seal the win.
