The Columbus Blue Jackets topped the Anaheim Ducks last night, 2-1 in overtime. Columbus got on the board first on a Derrick Brassard wrist shot goal midway through the second. However, Anaheim would answer with a goal early in the third that would force overtime. But in the extra period the Jackets would take the win right away on a Mark Letestu goal a minute in. With the win, the Jackets currently sit at eighth in the Western Conference. Columbus will now head to Nashville on Thursday night. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 7:45 and drop of the puck at 8.
