Jackets take Ducks in OT

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Zach Werenski scored 1:21 into overtime after Columbus blew a two-goal lead, helping the Blue Jackets escape with a 3-2 victory over the Ducks on Wednesday.

Brandon Saad had a goal and an assist, and Boone Jenner got his first score this season for Columbus, which won its fourth straight at home and stretched its point streak to five games (4-0-1). Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves.

Anaheim's Nick Ritchie tied it at 2 early in the third period after Rickard Rakell scored late in the second. John Gibson made 15 stops.

After being pinned in its zone to start overtime, Columbus pushed the play forward. Alexander Wennberg — who got his 12th assist — spun with the puck at the left faceoff dot, hitting Werenski with a pass in stride in the slot. The rookie defenseman snapped a shot by Gibson for his third goal of the season.

"I wasn't sure how (Wennberg) was going to pass it, but he got it to me," Werenski said.

Jenner and Saad scored in the game's first 51/2 minutes, but the Ducks gained their footing and carried the play from the midpoint of the first into the third.

Rakell got his goal with 2:39 left in the second on a shot that redirected off Werenski. Cam Fowler shot a puck that banked off Rakell before deflecting off Werenski's blade and in.

Bobrovsky gifted Anaheim its other goal 1:25 into the third. He left his net and misplayed a puck, allowing Joseph Cramarossa to get possession and pass to Ritchie in front.

Game highlights: Bobby Ryan had the winning goal in a shootout and the Senators beat the host Sabres 2-1. … Artemi Panarin scored 25 seconds into overtime to give the Blackhawks a 2-1 win over the host Blues. St. Louis' Alex Pietrangelo tied the score at 1 with 2:11 left in regulation.
