The Columbus Blue Jackets are in a dog fight for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and, as such, can ill afford to drop points to teams below them in the standings.

Forward Artem Anisimov did his part to help the team attempt to beat Florida on Saturday, single-handedly fending off several Panthers for this short-handed goal late in the second period.

The goal was Anisimov's 15th of the season (second short-handed), and was definitely worthy of his token "stick gun salute."
