Anisimov’s overtime goal lifts Blue Jackets past Flyers, 4-3

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — In the most unlikely of comebacks, the Columbus Blue Jackets relied on the most unlikely of goal scorers.

Artem Anisimov, without a goal in his last 21 games, scored 2:17 into overtime to give the Blue Jackets a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

The Blue Jackets had been winless when trailing after two periods (0-20-0) and the Flyers had not lost in regulation when ahead going into the third period (13-0-2).

“I feel like it’s a weight off my shoulders,” said Anisimov, who had not scored since Oct. 11, 2014. “Really, you know, I did not score for lots of games.”

Flyers goalie Ray Emery stopped James Wisniewski’s one-timer, but Anisimov jumped on the short rebound and shifted the puck to his forehand to beat Emery.
