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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
