Blue Jackets 2, Ducks 1 (OT)
Mark Letestu's goal with one minute remaining in overtime pushed the Blue Jackets into the playoff picture and stamped Columbus' month of March with a mighty exclamation point.
Letestu's ninth goal of the season, off a slick setup from Nikita Nikitin, lifted the Blue Jackets to a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks and moved Columbus into eighth place in the Western Conference.
The Blue Jackets were widely considered the worst club in hockey when the 2012-13 season dawned. Instead, they've been one of the NHL's hottest clubs for more than a month.
Derick Brassard scored for the Blue Jackets, while goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves.
