Matt Duchene scored on the power play 3:42 into the second overtime, and Artemi Panarin collected two goals and one assist as the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 Saturday night to even their second-round playoff series at one win each.
Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves for the Blue Jackets. The best-of-seven series shifts to Columbus on Tuesday.
With Patrice Bergeron, Boston's best penalty killer, in the penalty box, Duchene was parked in front of the net when a point shot was stopped, but he slipped the rebound into the net for the game-winner as Columbus wrestled away home-ice advantage.
Twice the Bruins took a lead in the first 40 minutes. Twice the Blue Jackets drew even.
First, Matt Grzelcyk gave the hosts the lead with a rocket of a power-play goal nearing the eight-minute mark of the opening frame. Grzelcyk unloaded a slap shot from just inside the left circle that Bobrovsky only got a piece of with his trapper.
Panarin scored his first of the night with a man-advantage marker of his own 63 seconds into the second period. Cam Atkinson intercepted a poor clearing attempt by Zdeno Chara, and soon after, Panarin unloaded a short-side one-timer that found the mark.
David Pastrnak again put the Bruins ahead 2:01 into the second period. Pastrnak was battling in front of the net when Charlie Coyle's wraparound attempt banked off his skate and into the cage to make it a 2-1 game.
However, Panarin tallied exactly six minutes later, the beneficiary of another Bruins turnover. While in his own zone, Coyle sent a puck up the middle that Seth Jones intercepted before sending it to Panarin at the right wing. Panarin ripped a sharp-angled shot home for his fourth goal of the playoffs.
Both goalies made scintillating saves in the first overtime. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, who made a big stop late in regulation, denied Nick Foligno in the early moments of overtime. Bobrovsky twice stoned Bergeron, and he also had some luck when Coyle rang a rebound off the post.
Rask finished with 38 saves.
