COLUMBUS, Ohio — Boone Jenner scored late in the third period and again in the shootout after Cam Atkinson’s tying goal with 9.8 seconds left, rallying the Columbus Blue Jackets to an improbable 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Jenner scored in the fifth round of the shootout when he faked goalie Steve Mason out of the net and fired the puck in. Sergei Bobrvosky then turned away Sean Couturier moments later to secure the victory.

Jenner and Atkinson scored in the final 1:04 of regulation to force the extra session.

Mason finished with 52 saves for the Flyers, who blew a two-goal lead in the final 65 seconds but still earned a point. That was enough to pull them into a tie with Detroit for the final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
