Loui Eriksson scored from a hard angle in the opening minute of the third period for his first goal with Boston, as the Bruins beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 in the NHL on Saturday.
Playing their first road game, the Bruins also got a goal from Chris Kelly, and an empty-net tally from Milan Lucic. Goalie Tuukka Rask, who made 26 saves, blocked Marian Gaborik's tying attempt in the closing moments and then pushed the puck aside with his glove.
Jack Johnson scored on a first-period power play for the Blue Jackets, who won their last two on the road but are 0-2 at home. Sergei Bobrovsky, last year's Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie, stopped 33 shots.
