Here’s what happened.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Columbus Blue Jackets at Boston Bruins Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Columbus Blue Jackets hit the ice Saturday night looking to even their second round series with the Boston Bruins. Columbus started slow in game one, but let a third period lead slip away as they fell in overtime.

Saturday, the Jackets juggled the lineup ahead of their game as Torts made an ... interesting lineup decision, swapping out Ryan Dzingel for Alexander Wennberg. No other changes were made.

Here’s what happened.

First Period

A heavy hitting start to the game Boston opened the scoring with a power play goal from Matt Grzelcyk after Josh Anderson was boxed for interference.

Second Period

Artemi Panarin equalized on a Brad Marchand cross checking penalty. Seconds later, Charlie Coyle scored as he threw a puck at the net that caromed in off the back of Dean Kukan’s leg.

Panarin is magical, tie game.

Third Period
