Fedor Tyutin scored 2:19 into overtime, and the Columbus Blue Jackets moved into eighth place in the Western Conference with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.

Blake Comeau and Matt Calvert also scored for the Blue Jackets, who rallied to win and jumped two points ahead of Detroit, which lost earlier Wednesday. Columbus moved within one point of seventh-place St. Louis. Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves.

The Ducks, who already have clinched a postseason berth, lead Los Angeles and San Jose by six points in their bid for their second Pacific Division title.

Defenseman Sami Vatanen scored his first NHL goal, one day after Anaheim recalled him from the minors, and David Steckel ended a 32-game goal drought. Viktor Fasth stopped 25 shots, including a short-handed breakaway by R.J. Umberger in the first period.
