COLUMBUS, Ohio – Needing only two points in their final three games, the Blue Jackets head to Dallas to take on a Stars team whose playoff hopes have also been revived.

Tonight’s game (830 p.m./FOX Sports Ohio) is a makeup game for a match that was postponed when Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench. The Blue Jackets will start the game with a 1-0 lead, but the scoreboard clock will be reset so the teams will play 60 minutes.

Ryan Johansen took a stretch pass from James Wisniewski and scored on a wrist shot at 3:33 of overtime to lead the Jackets to a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night, tying a franchise record for wins.

Sergei Bobrovsky had 29 saves, Blake Comeau, Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu also had goals and Artem Anisimov added two assists for the Blue Jackets.

It was their 41st victory to match their most in their 13 seasons.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson sent the game to overtime with a goal with just 14.6 seconds left in regulation, and Martin Erat and Shane Doan also had goals for the Coyotes, who have lost five in a row (0-2-3).

Although they picked up a point in the standings, the loss kept Dallas’s playoff hopes alive.
