(TSX / STATS) -- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A battle of two goaltenders on top of their games came down to which team could find the net first in the stalemate.

It took overtime before Columbus forward Josh Anderson could put a puck past Calgary goaltender Mike Smith and give the Blue Jackets a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Flames on Wednesday night at Nationwide Arena.

The Blue Jackets took advantage of a Flames turnover behind the net with 2:58 remaining in the extra period when Nick Foligno collected the loose puck and delivered a pass to Anderson, who sent a close-range shot past Smith's glove for the winner.


OT goal caps Tampa rally vs. Blackhawks

"Down 2-0 to a team as good as Chicago, it was a great bounce-back performance in the second and third and in overtime for our group," said Tampa Bay center Steven Stamkos, who got the assist on the four-on-three goal with 1:35 remaining in overtime. "Now we go on the road feeling a little better about ourselves."

Red-hot Boeser lifts Canucks over Pens

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- Brock Boeser has found his inner chill. It's working wonders.

"I've learned that if your confidence gets too high, you won't produce and stuff like that.

Bailey lifts Isles in OT, Flyers' skid 6

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- When it comes to receiving publicity for his feats, New York Islanders center Josh Bailey is a "tweener" -- is too established to be an unknown prospect but yet, after eight-seasons as a teammate of John Tavares, too overshadowed by one of the best players in the NHL.

But this season, Bailey has been too good for anyone to ignore for much longer.
