COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --- Alexander Wennberg and Cam Atkinson each scored in the
shootout and Joonas Korpisalo stopped shots by Corey Perry and Jakob
Silfverberg to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim
Ducks on Thursday night.
Columbus' Brandon Dubinsky tucked a shot inside the left goal post on the power
play to make it 3-all with 5:03 left in the third, eventually forcing overtime.
The Blue Jackets failed to capitalize on a power play in overtime, holding a
man advantage over the final 1:18.
Nine minutes before Dubinsky's equalizer, Brandon Saad scored his team-leading
20th goal on a rebound to get his team back within a goal after Ryan Garbutt
slipped a shot from a tight angle by Korpisalo at 1:45 of the third.
Korpisalo finished with 24 saves to earn his eighth win of the season.
Mike Santorelli scored with 12 seconds remaining in the second, when he ripped
a shot past Korpisalo to give the Ducks a 2-0 advantage.
Columbus' William Karlsson answered just 7 seconds later, pushing a pass from
captain Nick Foligno past Anaheim's Frederik Andersen. Foligno finished with
two assists, his first points since Jan. 26.
David Perron opened the scoring at 4:47 of the first, flipping a pass from
Getzlaf by Korpisalo for his eighth goal of the season.
Karlsson's goal was his seventh tally of the season, but first against his
former team. Anaheim traded Karlsson to Columbus last March.
Thursday marked the fourth straight outing in which Columbus allowed the first
goal, but the Blue Jackets have won three of those games.
NOTES: Anaheim suffered just its second loss in nine games, both coming at the
beginning of its current seven-game road trip. ... Andersen finished with 30
saves. ... Getzlaf's two assists extended his team-leading total to 35.
