The Boston Bruins won their fourth game in a row by taking out the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 in overtime.
They were able to do it thanks to a breakaway goal by Milan Lucic beating Sergei Bobrovsky in the closing seconds of the extra session.
For Lucic, the goal was his team-leading eighth of the year. Keep in mind he had only seven goals all last year.
Those numbers are also important for the Blue Jackets as they’ve lost seven of their last eight games. Incredibly, if the Jackets beat the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night, they’ll be just two points back of third place in the Metropolitan Division.
Sure is nice to be in the Eastern Conference, isn’t it?
