Derick Brassard's second goal of the game -- with 1:05 left in overtime -- lifted Columbus to a 3-2, come-from-behind victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night, snapping the Blue Jackets' six-game skid.
Columbus' Jeff Carter scored the tying power-play goal in his return from a 10-game absence with a separated shoulder as the Blue Jackets finally won in the finale of a six-game road trip.
The NHL's worst team rallied from a third-period deficit in its first game since an apparent clock malfunction possibly cost them a point in a 3-2 loss up the I-5 freeway in Los Angeles two nights ago.
Teemu Selanne scored his 654th and 655th career goals for the Ducks, who have lost two straight home games in discouraging fashion after a 9-1-1 run through most of January.
Moments after Selanne barely missed the net with an overtime shot, Brassard took the puck away from Cam Fowler in the Columbus end and skated the length of the ice to beat Jonas Hiller, who stopped 18 shots.
