The Columbus Blue Jackets are looking forward to their second playoff appearance in franchise history.
Columbus had a little head start with a chance to clinch just the second playoff berth in franchise history.
With what lies ahead, it was particularly refreshing for the Columbus Blue Jackets to have a rare game that didn't come down to the final seconds.
Almost none of the 14,070 fans on hand knew that Mark Letestu scored the game-winning goal for the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu each scored twice to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 6-3 victory on Saturday and extended the Winnipeg Jets' losing streak to a season-high five games.
Sidney Crosby's return date from a concussion is still unknown. Evgeni Malkin is headed toward surgery and won't play again until next season. Chris Kunitz is day to day, and Mike Comrie, Mark Letestu and Arron Asham are all sidelined with various injuries.
"We've let some slip away, so we were pretty focused on not letting that happen," said Letestu, whose even-strength goal midway through the second period ended a string of 22 games in which he had not scored. "That was an important two points."
"We seem not to do anything the easy way," Letestu said with a laugh. "To get four (games) in five (days) to finish off the season, it's very Blue Jacket of us - doing things the hard way and probably earning our way into the playoffs."
