San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Ryan Johansen's goal late in regulation lifted the Columbus Blue Jackets over San Jose, 4-3, at HP Pavilion.

Mark Letestu tallied twice and Vinny Prospal once for the Blue Jackets, who pulled into a tie for seventh place in the Western Conference alongside Minnesota. The Wild lost to Calgary earlier on Sunday.

Sergei Bobrovsky remained strong in net, stopping 32 pucks.

Andrew Desjardins and Joe Pavelski scored to erase a two-goal, third-period deficit for the Sharks, whose three-game win streak came to an end.

Martin Havlat scored, while Antti Niemi made only 18 saves for San Jose, which could have locked up a playoff berth with at least one point.
