Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) - Alex Khokhlachev scored the lone goal in the seven-round shootout to carry the Boston Bruins to a come-from-behind 4-3 triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets Friday at Nationwide Arena.

Playing just his second career NHL game, Khokhlachev fired an 8-foot wrist shot past Sergei Bobrovsky to help the Bruins (13-8-0) bag their third straight win.

Dennis Seidenberg , Matt Fraser and Daniel Paille scored in regulation while backup goaltender Niklas Svedberg recorded 25 saves in regulation and five in the shootout for the Bruins.

Ryan Johansen , Nick Foligno and Jack Johnson scored in regulation while Bobrovsky made 38 saves in his third game since returning from a broken finger as the Blue Jackets (6-11-2) suffered a second straight loss after a two-game winning run.

Johansen put the Blue Jackets ahead with a wrist shot that went past Svedberg at 9:52 of the first before Foligno made it 2-0 at 11:30 with his 10th goal of the season.

The Bruins trailed by two goals heading into the third but Seidenberg started the comeback with a 95-foot shot that went through Bobrovsky's pads at 1:28.

Fraser made an unassisted shot at 9:33 to tie the count before the Bruins took the lead at 11:32 when Paille took a loose puck and beat Bobrovsky stick side.

Johnson sent the game to extra time when he scored his first goal of the season with 7:13 left in regulation.
