COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Blue Jackets reclaimed the second wild card playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.

Artem Anisimov scored twice, including a late insurance goal, as the CBJ held off a third-period rally. Anisimov’s first goal came with 5:00 left in the first period and gave Columbus a 3-0 lead.

The Blue Jackets have won three in a row and are vying for only their second postseason appearance since joining the league in 2000.

Columbus climbed into a tie for seventh place in the conference with the Rangers, leapfrogging the Red Wings who suffered a 4-3 loss to New Jersey. Columbus also surpassed idle Washington for sole possession of fourth place in the Metropolitan Division.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves, one on an open shot by Jamie Benn with 5 minutes left with the Blue Jackets clinging to a one-goal lead. Bobrovsky solidly tracked loose pucks near the crease the entire game to improve to 5-0-1 against Dallas.

Columbus scored on the first shot of the game and bolted to a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Boone Jenner, R.J. Umberger and Anisimov against back-up Dan Ellis, making his first appearance since Feb. 1.
