COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Max Domi scored 4:39 into overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Detroit Red Wings 5-4 in the season finale for both teams.

Matiss Kivlenieks had 33 saves for the Blue Jackets who despite the feel-good win to end the season couldn’t avoid finishing in the Central Division cellar.

Columbus needed a win in regulation to jump the Red Wings in the standings.

Eric Robinson had a goal and an assist, Cam Atkinson got his 15th goal of the season, Oliver Bjorkstrand got his team-leading 18th and Max Domi also scored for Columbus.
