Blue Jackets get good news on ice in 3-2 win over Red Wings and off it with Anisimov's update

DETROIT - Vinny Prospal scored with 24.7 seconds left, capping a comeback that lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night

Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula scored in the first 2-plus minutes of the game to put the Red Wings ahead by two, a cushion they wasted for a third time during their five-game losing streak.

R.J. Umberger's power-play goal a couple of minutes after Detroit took its two-goal lead pulled Columbus within one. Derek Dorsett tied it in the third period.

Prospal's backhander off crisp passes from James Wisniewski and Derek Dorsett ended the Blue Jackets' three-game losing streak.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
