Another night, another club record for Artemi Panarin.

The Blue Jackets winger scored his second overtime game-winner in as many games Saturday night, handing his team to a huge 2-1 win over Washington Capitals.

It was a thing of beauty, coming on a power play with just 90 seconds to play in the extra period.

The OT winner was Panarin's fourth of the season, setting a new Blue Jackets record. Panarin entered the night tied for the franchise mark with Seth Jones (2016-17) and Cam Atkinson (2016-17) with three overtime winners in a season.

Just two nights ago, Panarin's winner in Columbus gave the Blue Jackets a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators. Bread's other two overtime goals this season came against the Sabres on Oct. 27 and in the opener against the Detroit Red Wings.

With 38 games remaining, Panarin has a shot at tying or breaking the NHL record for most overtime goals in a single season, currently five, and reached by four players, most recently by Boston's Brad Marchand last season.
