COLUMBUS, Ohio - Kevin Connauton scored his first goal of the season off a lead pass from Ryan Johansen at 1:58 of overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.

Johansen took a drop pass and waited for Connauton to slip past Matt Read. He then fed a pass to Connauton for the high shot that beat Steve Mason.

Boone Jenner scored in his career-best fourth straight game, and Scott Hartnell also had a goal. Sergei Bobrovsky made 19 saves.

Brayden Schenn had both goals for the Flyers, including one after a video review with 55.3 seconds left in the third period. Mason stopped 21 shots.
