Corvo's 2 goals lead Bruins past Jackets, 5-3

Joe Corvo scored his first two goals of the season and Milan Lucic had three assists to lead the Boston Bruins to a come-from-behind 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Nathan Horton, Chris Kelly and Zdeno Chara, who left after two periods with an undisclosed lower-body injury, also scored for the Bruins. They bounced back from a rare two-game losing skid after gaining points in 15 games in a row. David Krejci added two assists.

The Blue Jackets, who blew a two-goal lead for the second game in a row, picked up goals from Rick Nash, Jeff Carter and R.J. Umberger.

Tim Thomas was the Bruins' goaltender for the first two periods but was replaced by Tuukka Rask at the start of the third.
