Jackets clinch playoff berth in 3-1 victory over Stars

DALLAS (AP) -- Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu added goals to the one Columbus already had when the makeup game started, and the Blue Jackets clinched the second playoff berth in franchise history with a 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.

Three takeaways from Blue Jackets 4-2 win over Stars

One: Successful teams rise to the occasion. The second night of a back-to-back saw fatigue set-in after the game in Toronto. Although they took their foot off the pedal, Columbus preserved the victory by bowing, but not breaking, under the Stars pressure. That kind of play will get you two points. Two: Artem Anisimov is currently in "beast" mode. Since coming back from...

Player Review: Artem Anisimov

In his third full year as a New York Ranger, 24-year-old forward Artem Anisimov had his fair share of ups and downs during the 2011-12 season. On some nights he could prove to be a legitimate difference maker for the Blueshirts, while on others he spent most of the game riding the bench because of a costly mistake. Not very much has changed in Anisimov's three years as a Ranger...

Video: Anisimov Gun Celebration Enrages Tampa Bay

The New York Rangers broke a 1-1 second period tie Thursday night with a beautiful passing display that ended with Artem Anisimov having a wide open net while shorthanded.  That was the good part of the play.   Following his depositing of the gimme goal, Anisimov's fifth of the season, he proceeded to flip the stick around as if it were a gun, drop to a knee and simulate firing...

Rangers' Anisimov does 'rifle' goal celebration

Kids these days are always mocking what they hear on the radio, see on television and witness in video games. New York Rangers 23 year old center Antem Anisimov is no different. Apparently Anisimov picked up his goal celebration from Call of Duty...or maybe it was Halo...or maybe Dunk Hunt. Anisimov scored his fifth goal the season against the Lightning tonight and turned his...

Quick Rangers/Sens Wrap Up: The Anisimov Show

We had some technical difficulties with the blog last night, so we were unable to post a recap right after the game. Artem Anisimov was the star of last night’s game, even if he didn’t get the Broadway hat. Here are your truncated bullets: Anisimov forced the turnover on the first goal, forced another turnover and got the puck to the net on the second goal, and made a simple...
