(NHL) Columbus beat Carolina in extra period
(03-30 13:30)

Ryan Johansen scored a power-play goal at 2:40 of overtime as Columbus beat Carolina 3-2 to earn two points in its push for the second playoff berth in club history and first since 2009.
Artem Anisimov had a goal and an assist and Matt Calvert also scored for the Blue Jackets
Jeff Skinner and Andrei Loktionov scored and Riley Nash had two assists for the Hurricanes, who fell to 6-11 since the Olympic break.
Curtis McElhinney made 25 saves for Columbus in his second straight start in place of flu-stricken starter Sergei Bobrovsky.
Brandon Dubinsky rang the left post midway through the extra session for the Blue Jackets. Goalie Anton Khudobin couldn't cover the puck, but forward Jiri Tlusty did _ drawing the Hurricanes' first penalty of the night at 1:54.
Johansen then ended it with a snap shot that trickled past Khudobin. --AP
