COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Artem Anisimov scored twice, including a late insurance goal, as the Columbus Blue Jackets held off a third-period Dallas rally for a 4-2 win over the Stars.

Columbus climbed into a tie for seventh with the Rangers in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets have won three in a row and are vying for only their second postseason appearance since joining the league in 2000.

Columbus scored on the first shot of the game and bolted to a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Boone Jenner, R.J. Umberger and Anisimov against back-up Dan Ellis. Ellis was shaky early in making his first appearance since Feb. 1.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves, one on an open shot by Jamie Benn with 5 minutes left with the Blue Jackets clinging to a one-goal lead. Bobrovsky solidly tracked loose pucks near the crease the entire game to improve to 5-0-1 against Dallas.
