BOS@CBJ: Eriksson taps it past Korpisalo in overtime

2/16/16: In his 700th career NHL game, Loui Eriksson redirects a Torey Krug feed past Joonas Korpisalo for the game-winning goal in overtime

  • 01:03 •

COLUMBUS -- Loui Eriksson, in his 700th NHL game, scored 33 seconds into overtime and the Boston Bruins defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday.

Eriksson converted a pass from defenseman Torey Krug with an easy tap-in for his 20th goal this season.

"He's going to the net," Krug said. "When you do that obviously you have a chance to score goals. He's a skilled player who crashes the net. Maybe some other guys should take a look at that and learn from it."
