TORONTO — Cam Atkinson and R.J. Umberger 20 seconds apart in the first period, and Ryan Johansen added two goals as the Columbus Blue Jackets routed the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-0 on Monday night.

Jack Skille and Ryan Murray added goals 3:15 apart in the second period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 18 saves for his fifth career NHL shutout. The Blue Jackets went 3-2 on their five-game road trip.

Toronto’s James Reimer allowed all six goals on 21 shots two nights after he had a career-high, 49-save performance.

Atkinson opened the scoring 10:18 in when he knocked Matt Calvert’s pass out of the air and past Reimer for his sixth goal. Umberger quickly added his sixth, putting home the rebound after Reimer made the initial save on Ryan Murray’s wraparound.
