BOSTON (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets felt like they were lucky to get a victory in their late-season push for one of the Eastern Conference's playoff spots.

Cam Atkinson scored 2:55 into overtime to lift the Blue Jackets to a 5-4 comeback victory over Boston on Monday night for their eighth straight win, spoiling a splendid NHL debut for Bruins forward Ryan Donato.

"We stuck with it and that's what good teams do," Atkinson said. "It wasn't our prettiest by no means, but we found a way to get two huge points."
