Mark Letestu sets up 1 goal, scores the winner in Blue Jackets' 2-1 overtime win over Ducks

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Mark Letestu set up the only goal in regulation and scored the game-winner in overtime, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 of 30 shots on Sunday to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The victory improved the Blue Jackets to 9-0-3 in their last 12 games at Nationwide Arena and gave them points in 15 of their last 17 games (10-2-5) to crawl into playoff contention in the West.

Emerson Etem had the only goal for the Pacific Division-leading Ducks, who had lost four in a row until winning 2-1 in Chicago on Friday night.

The game pitted two of the NHL's hottest teams over the past few weeks. The Ducks came in 16-5-3 for 35 points in their last 24 games, while the Blue Jackets were 9-2-5 over their last 16 to climb from 30th to the middle of the playoff hunt.

Quote of the Day

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
