Milan Lucic scores 2 goals as Bruins easily handle Blue Jackets 3-1

BOSTON - Milan Lucic scored a pair of goals and Patrice Bergeron added another, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

David Krejci added two assists for Eastern Conference-leading Boston, which is 10-2-2 in its past 14 games.

Boston's Chad Johnson needed only 13 saves for the win in just his fifth start. No. 1 goalie Tuukka Rask was given the night off.

The Bruins haven't lost at home in regulation in 11 games (9-0-2). Boston has won all three meetings between the teams this season.

Ryan Johansen scored a power-play goal for the Blue Jackets, who were outshot 36-14.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
