Allen York stopped 29 shots and earned his first NHL victory in an emergency start, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Red Wings 4-2 on Wednesday night after being routed in Detroit two days earlier. Columbus' top goalie Steve Mason was injured Wednesday morning when he was struck in the mask by a shot from teammate Colton Gillies. With Curtis Sanford already out with a leg injury, the Blue Jackets turned to York, who spent time this season in ECHL and American Hockey League. York made his eighth appearance and second start for the Blue Jackets. Vinny Prospal and Derek Dorsett scored in the first period, and Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger added goals in the second. York allowed Niklas Kronwall's power-play goal that made it 4-2 at 9:34 of the third, but stopped 17 shots in the period to hold on for the win.
