Matt Calvert's end-to-end goal in overtime lifts Blue Jackets to 2-1 win over Canucks

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Matt Calvert carried the puck almost from end to end, twice avoiding opposing players, before skating to the slot and scoring on a rising wrist shot to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 2-1 overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Calvert took a pass from Fedor Tyutin deep in the defensive zone and chipped the puck along the right boards while twice fighting off defenders. He then went unimpeded to the right hash before whipping the puck high over the glove side of goalie Cory Schneider.

Sergei Bobrovsky had 34 saves and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who have points in their last five games and have won three in a row — both season highs.

Henrik Sedin tied the game early in the third period for Vancouver. Schneider finished with 25 saves.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
