This is a column and line chart combination. The column axis is the left-hand y and the line chart axis is the right-hand y. The position of the legends on this chart is a departure from where they would normally appear. You can also color the y axes to match the color of the column and lines, as appropriate, to make the connection. Whatever method you use, be sure to make it clear to your audience which axis goes with which set of data.
