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.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
