Anisimov's 2 goals lead CBJ past Wings, 4-2

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Artem Anisimov scored twice in the second period, and Steve Mason stopped 32 shots to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Saturday night.

Mark Letestu added a short-handed goal, and James Wisniewski also scored for the Blue Jackets before leaving with an injury after he struck the end boards with his back early in the second period. Fedor Tyutin had two assists.

Mason, who earned his first win of the season, overcame an early goal by Johan Franzen. Damien Brunner added his fourth goal in the final seconds.

Anisimov was acquired last July in the blockbuster deal that sent captain Rick Nash to the New York Rangers. The Blue Jackets also sent a minor-league defenseman and a conditional third-round pick to the Rangers for Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon and a first-round pick.
