Anisimov's wrister in overtime, Bobrovsky's 18 saves lead Blue Jackets past Avalanche, 2-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Artem Anisimov scored on a hard wrist shot on an overtime power play, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 18 saves to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.

The victory ended a four-game skid, all of the losses by a goal, with the last two coming in overtime. Columbus, with the worst record in the West, had lost seven of eight.

Vinny Prospal had the other goal for the Blue Jackets, thanks to Ryan O'Reilly, who inadvertently tapped it in while making his Avalanche season debut after a contract dispute.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
