The Boston Bruins snapped a three game skid by beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 in OT.

Screen Recording.2019-03-16 19_23_49Patrice Bergeron opened the scoring with a PPG (his 800th career point), 1-0 Bruins.

Matt Duchene walked John Moore and went short side shelf to tie the game at 1-1. Pretty goal.

McGregor joined NESN’s Dale Arnold during the 1st period intermission to talk about how he got the Bruins fired the fuck up before the game.

The Bruins started controlling the game more in the second, CBJ on the second night of a back to back wouldn’t give up though. 1-1 after 3.

OT:

90 seconds into OT… this happened.

News, notes and quotes:

  • Patrice Bergeron’s PPG in the 1st period was his 800th NHL point. He’s 6th on the B’s all-time list with only Ray Bourque (1,506), John Bucyk (1,339), Phil Esposito (1,012), Rick Middleton (898) and Bobby Orr (888) ahead of him.
  • Monster game from Charlie McAvoy – 26:34 of TOI tonight.
  • Brad Marchand set season high in points (87) with his assist on Bergy’s goal and his own OT winner. His 31st of the season. Stay hot, Marchy.
  • Jake DeBrusk returned to the lineup for the first time since suffering a LBI, didn’t look like he missed a beat out there.
  • I’ve liked Conor Clifton’s game since he’s come up from the A as well.
  • Jaro Halak made 24 saves, including some crucial crucial stops during OT.

B’s are back on Tuesday night against the Islanders. Barstool Radio will be live from Borrelli’s before the game.. 4-6 pm. See you there.

It was a great night to win a hockey game.
