Blue Jackets work double overtime for Game 2 win over Bruins

The Blue Jackets outlasted a clearly worn out Bruins team with a 3-2 win in double-overtime on Saturday night during Game 2 at TD Garden. Columbus got the better of the second period and tied the game 2-2 heading into the third period.

But the game could have been uglier if not for Tuukka Rask.

The Bruins meanwhile outlasted the Maple Leafs in a 7-game thriller and were suspect to a let down in their series opener but they weathered the storm and pulled out a 3-2 overtime win on the back of Charlie Coyle.

With Boston up 1-0, Brad Marchand, who'd been unpenalized in the postseason, tempted fate in Game 1 and finally visited the penalty box to open the second period after his post-buzzer cross check started a skirmish. The Jackets spoiled a third period lead and fell in overtime to open the series against the Bruins but will be out for a rebound here as they can steal home ice advantage and head back to OH with a 1-1 split. Dubinsky opted to take a shot at Bruins fans and the noise level at TD Garden for Games 1 and 2 after the BJ's big win.

After going 5-for-10 on the power play in their first-round series versus Tampa Bay, the Blue Jackets saw their second opportunity with the man advantage go up in smoke midway into the first period.

Less than a minute later, Duchene kicked the puck onto his stick and slid it through Rask's legs to end it.

The fourth line has made its presence felt in back-to-back contests, as the group consisting of Sean Kuraly (one goal, one assist), Joakim Nordstrom (one goal, one assist) and Acciari (assist) totaled five points in Boston's 5-1 win over Toronto in Game 7 of the first-round series.
