The Columbus Blue Jackets have clinched the second playoff berth in franchise history with a 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars last night.

Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu added goals to the one Columbus already had when the makeup game started. The Blue Jackets had a 1-0 lead when the puck dropped because that was the score on March 10th, the night the original game was postponed after Dallas forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench because of an irregular heartbeat.

The Detroit Red Wings also clinched a playoff spot Wednesday night when they earned a point in a 4-3 shootout loss to Pittsburgh.
