Eriksson’s first B’s goal a game-winner as Boston beats Columbus

Loui Eriksson came into Saturday scoreless through three contests with the Bruins, knowing the guy he was traded for — Tyler Seguin — notched a four-point game on Friday.

So, Eriksson decided to do something about it.

The Swedish winger scored his first goal as a Bruin and made it count, registering the game-winner in Boston’s 3-1 victory over Columbus at Nationwide Arena.

Eriksson finished with what many in attendance called his best game in a Boston uniform, putting a team-high six shots on goal in just under 19 minutes of action.

The 28-year-old finished as the game’s third star, and Boston moved to 3-1-0 on the year.
