Blue Jackets win in OT, aided by ex-Flyers

Columbus, OH ( – A pair of former Philadelphia players
teamed up to help the Blue Jackets win on Tuesday night.

Scott Hartnell scored a power-play goal in the second period and Sergei
Bobrovsky came up with 19 stops as the Columbus claimed a 3-2 decision
over the Flyers at Nationwide Arena.

Kevin Connauton actually ended the contest at the 1:58 mark of overtime,
breaking in alone and lifting a wrister under the crossbar off a feed from
Ryan Johansen.

The hosts were close to picking up two points while not allowing their
opponents to take one away.

Controversy erupted with 55.3 seconds to go, as a deflection from Brayden
Schenn of a point shot slipped through Bobrovsky. Although referee Dave
Jackson emphatically shook his head and raised his arms to stop play,
televised replays revealed the puck was clearly over the line.

Further review quickly confirmed the marker and the game headed to overtime.

Boone Jenner also lit the lamp for the Blue Jackets, winners of a season-high
four straight games.

Schenn posted both scores for the Flyers, who finished up a five-game cross-
country road trip at 1-2-2. Steve Mason made 21 saves in defeat, three days
after his 37-save effort in Los Angeles allowed his club to pick up their lone
win on the trip.
