(TSX / STATS) -- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A battle of two goaltenders on top of their games came down to which team could find the net first in the stalemate.

It took overtime before Columbus forward Josh Anderson could put a puck past Calgary goaltender Mike Smith and give the Blue Jackets a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Flames on Wednesday night at Nationwide Arena.

The Blue Jackets took advantage of a Flames turnover behind the net with 2:58 remaining in the extra period when Nick Foligno collected the loose puck and delivered a pass to Anderson, who sent a close-range shot past Smith's glove for the winner.
