In the third period, Paajarvi scored his second goal of the game at the 5:31 mark on a wide-open shot and it was 3-2 Edmonton.

Columbus was not going to be denied. Umberger scored his second goal of the night, number 19 of the season at 13:44 and it was a tie game at 3-3.

Then Huselius came in on a 1-on-1 rush and scored his second goal of the game, 11th of the season at the 16:00 mark and the Jackets had won back-to-back games.
