DALLAS — Columbus had a little head start with a chance to clinch just the second playoff berth in franchise history.
The Blue Jackets took advantage right away Wednesday night.
Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu added first-period goals to the one Columbus already had when the puck dropped in a makeup game with Dallas, and the Blue Jackets withstood a frantic third period for a 3-1 victory over the equally playoff-hungry Stars.
“It’s been a long time,” said winger Jared Boll, one of the few players remaining from the Blue Jackets’ last playoff team in 2008-09. “It’s just the first step. We’ve still got a long way to go.”
The Blue Jackets had a 1-0 lead when the puck dropped because that was the score March 10, the night the original game was postponed after Dallas forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench because of an irregular heartbeat.

PITTSBURGH — Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma was impressed by Kris Letang in his return after recovering from a stroke 10 weeks ago.
Jussi Jokinen scored in regulation and then got the game-winner in the shootout, lifting Pittsburgh to a 4-3 victory over the playoff-bound Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
James Neal scored two power-play goals in regulation — his 25th and 26th of the season — for Pittsburgh, which got the 26-year-old Letang back for the first time since January.
“He’s been out a long time and he looked pretty darn good out there defending against some good players,” Bylsma said. “He made a difference.”
Tomas Jurco, Jakub Kindl and Riley Sheahan scored for the Red Wings, who are headed to the postseason for an NHL-leading 23rd straight time.
Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had 34 saves through overtime and stopped all three attempts in the shootout, including a spinning acrobatic glove save on Daniel Alfredsson to preserve the win.

Martinez’s HR in 10th leads Tigers over Dodgers PDF Print E-mail

LOS ANGELES — Victor Martinez helped the Detroit Tigers overcome the struggles of Joe Nathan.
The Detroit Tigers’ closer blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning Wednesday night against the Dodgers.
But Martinez picked him up in a big way with a leadoff home run in the 10th against Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen, and Detroit pulled out a 7-6 victory in which both pitching staffs made a combined 382 pitches during the 4 hour, 16-minute marathon.
“Kenley Jansen is filthy, but Victor Martinez is a professional hitter,” Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter said. “He’s at the plate, just trying to figure you out, and I think he figured out how Jansen’s ball moves.
“He was able to get inside of it and hit it out of the ballpark and come up with another clutch hit. That’s what this team is capable of doing. We have some veteran guys who have good at-bats and can get the job done.”
Martinez drove a 2-2 pitch deep into the pavilion seats in right-center to make a winner of Nathan (2-0).

CLEVELAND — Their playoff chase, which somehow lasted longer that it probably should have, is officially over.
The Cavaliers came up short.
On a night when they finally put it all together, their hopes crumbled.
Dion Waiters scored 22 points and the Cavs played one of their best games this season, routing the Detroit Pistons 122-100 on Wednesday before being eliminated from the playoff race.
Tyler Zeller scored 18 and rookie Matthew Dellavedova had 14 points and 12 assists for Cleveland, which had its slim playoff hopes ended when Atlanta defeated Boston 105-97.
“It’s an empty feeling now that your chances are done,” said All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who has missed the postseason in each of his three years in the NBA. “You think about things you could have done, you should have done. It’s inevitable, especially as big a competitor as I am. It’s definitely going to be on my mind.
