DENVER (AP) — Nick Foligno scored at 4:31 of overtime, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Monday night for their fourth straight win.

Blake Comeau, Mark Letestu and R.J. Umberger also added goals to help the Blue Jackets remain in the thick of a tightly packed playoff chase. They pulled even in points (47) with Detroit for the final playoff spot.

Cody McLeod scored twice and Jamie McGinn added another for the Avalanche, who are last in the Western Conference.

Foligno skated in on the right side of Jean-Sebastien Giguere and sent a wrist shot by the veteran goaltender.
