Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Cam Atkinson scored two goals, Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves and the Columbus Blue Jackets kept their postseason hopes alive by wrapping up a six-game road trip with Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars.

Mark Letestu also tallied for the Blue Jackets, who notched their seventh win in eight games and moved into a tie with idle Minnesota for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Each club has 53 points, but the Wild have two games remaining to Columbus' one.

Detroit sits seventh with 54 points and has one game left on its schedule.

Kari Lehtonen stopped 32 shots for Dallas, which was eliminated from playoff contention with Detroit's win over Nashville on Thursday.
