NHL: Columbus 2, Colorado 1 (OT)

March 3, 2013 at 5:57 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 3 (UPI) -- Artem Anisimov scored a power-play goal 2:26 into overtime Sunday, staking the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 2-1 win over Colorado.

P.A. Parenteau was whistled for hooking 42 seconds into the extra frame, and on the ensuing 4-on-3 power play, Anisimov got control of the puck in the right circle and used a screen from R.J. Umberger to fire the game-winner past Semyon Varlamov.

Vinny Prospal's man-advantage tally early in the third period had tied the contest.

Sergei Bobrovsky turned aside 18-of-19 shots for Columbus, which broke a four-game losing streak.

Parenteau scored and Varlamov finished with 32 saves for the Avalanche, who fell for the fourth time in five contests.
