Prospal's late goal lifts Blue Jackets over Red Wings
Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Vinny Prospal scored with just 24.7 seconds to play as the Columbus Blue Jackets took a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.
Derek Dorsett posted a goal and an assist while R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who snapped a three-game losing streak and a six-game road skid. Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves in the win.
Columbus, though, did lose center Artem Anisimov to a possible head injury in the game after he was taken off on a stretcher following his head hitting the ice.
On the play early in the second period, Anisimov tripped over Detroit's Ian White and fell to the ice. As he was falling, Detroit's Kyle Quincey also fell to the ice and his elbow came down on the head of Anisimov. After several minutes on the ground, he was taken into the locker room on a stretcher.
It was later announced that he was awake and responsive and had been taken to Detroit Medical Center.
Damien Brunner and Valtteri Filppula both scored for the Red Wings, who have dropped their past five games. Jimmy Howard gave up all three goals on 24 shots.
