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."
