EDMONTON (CP) - Fredrik Norrena recorded his first career NHL shutout as the Columbus Blue Jackets earned a 4-0 win Saturday over the Edmonton Oilers, who also lost captain Ryan Smyth to a fractured thumb.

Dan Fritsche led the way with a goal and two assists while Alexander Svitov, Gilbert Brule and Anson Carter also scored for Columbus (7-16-2).

The Oilers (13-10-2) have lost three in a row following a four-game winning streak. Edmonton also faces the possibility of an extended period without Smyth, who leads the team with 16 goals in 25 games. The talented forward left the game in the first period and did not return.

It's the latest bad break for the Oilers, who lost third-leading scorer Ales Hemsky to a shoulder injury two games earlier in a loss to Anaheim. He's expected to miss one-to-two weeks.

The Blue Jackets opened the scoring almost nine minutes in when Svitov's soft wrist shot from the high slot beat Oilers starter Dwayne Roloson five-hole to give Columbus a 1-0 lead after a listless first period.

The Oilers continued to struggle early in the second period, registering only one shot on a four-minute power-play opportunity.

congrads to Norrena played a great game. It would be nice to see him step up and be able to do 50/50 with passy. I think passy plays better when he has to fight for the #1 spot.The PK did a very good job last night just think what it will be with Berard and Westcott back.Picard has really steped up the last couple game now just to get him some goals an im sure thay will come.Svitov had a goal but i still think he should go to the crunch.

GO JACKETS
