When Blue Jackets center Artem Anisimov came over the boards for his final shift in the second period, he glanced at the scoreboard and made a mental note.

“It was 30 seconds to go,” Anisimov said.

He certainly made the most of them.

Anisimov’s short-handed goal with 10 seconds remaining in the second gave the Blue Jackets the lead for good in a 6-3 win over the Florida Panthers before 15,441 at Nationwide Arena.

R.J. Umberger, Cam Atkinson, David Savard, Nick Foligno and Matt Calvert also scored, and Jack Johnson had three assists for the Blue Jackets, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky needed to make just 17 saves because the Blue Jackets outshot the Panthers 35-20.

“Every game is huge this time of year,” Foligno said. “Arty’s goal was really big for us. Perfect timing. Let’s bank these points and go get some more.”

The Blue Jackets matched a season high with three power-play goals and added two empty-net goals in the final 61 seconds. But it was Anisimov’s goal that broke a 3-3 tie and seemed to sap the Panthers.

“When we go to the locker room, it’s huge momentum for us,” Anisimov said. “Every goal scored in the last minute of a period is big. But a short-handed goal … it’s even bigger.”

It was the opposite feeling from two days earlier, when the Blue Jackets, trailing the New Jersey Devils 3-2, gave up a short-handed goal in a 5-2 loss.

Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau had the puck along the wall in the corner and appeared to be holding it there to let the clock run down. Anisimov, who had been hounding the Panthers in their zone the entire shift, outworked Huberdeau for the puck and carried it in on goaltender Scott Clemmensen for a clean look.

He lifted the puck off Clemmensen’s right pad and into the far corner of the net, then waved his arms and let out a throaty yell before a scrum of teammates formed.

“Arty made a great individual play,” coach Todd Richards said. “I didn’t realize it was such a great individual play until I was able to look at the replay (after the game). That got the energy back for us. It probably would have been a little disheartening for us to go into the third period tied.”

The Blue Jackets started well, taking a 2-0 lead only 11 minutes into the game on power-play goals by Umberger and Atkinson. At that point, the Jackets were outshooting the Panthers 11-1 and seemed on the verge of a blowout.

But then they turned charitable. Defenseman James Wisniewski made two bad passes on one shift, and the second resulted in a goal by Florida’s Shawn Matthias at 13:50 of the first.
