Nick Foligno scored 40 seconds into the third period, Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Vegas Golden Knights 1-0 on Monday night.

Foligno found the rebound after Seth Jones’ shot and knocked it past goalie Malcolm Subban from the doorstep.

“We deserved this one,” said Foligno, who played in his 800th career game and snapped a five-game goal drought.

Bobrovsky got his 25th career shutout and first this season. He repelled a late attack by the Golden Knights after Subban was pulled for an extra skater with a minute left.

Other than allowing Foligno’s goal, Subban performed well starting in place of Marc-Andre Fleury in the second game of a back-to-back. He made 30 saves.

Vegas ended a four-game point streak that included three victories.
