Loui Eriksson's first Boston goal, Tuukka Rask's 26 saves lift Bruins to 3-1 win over Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Loui Eriksson scored from a hard angle in the opening minute of the third period for his first goal with Boston, and the Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Saturday.

Playing their first road game, the Bruins also got a goal from Chris Kelly, and an empty-net tally from Milan Lucic. Tuukka Rask made 26 saves.

Rask blocked Marian Gaborik's tying attempt in the closing moments and then pushed the puck aside with his glove.

Jack Johnson scored on a first-period power play for the Blue Jackets, who won their last two on the road but are now 0-2 at home.

Sergei Bobrovsky, last year's Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie, stopped 33 shots.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
