Jake DeBrusk and the Boston Bruins are looking to build some momentum heading into the playoffs.

McDavid, the Oilers' captain, had seven goals and 20 assists over the month.

A weekend of bad habits and even worse luck for the Boston Bruins sorted itself in the first period of Tuesday's head-to-head with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The postseason situation is murkier for Columbus, which could have clinched a wild card with a regulation win and a loss by Montreal, who beat the Lightning 4-2.

DeBrusk had two goals and an assist and Tuukka Rask made 32 saves to help the Bruins stop a two-game slide.

But the Bruins were not done, as Marcus Johansson converted for his first goal in a Boston uniform, scored 17:27 into the period. Columbus and Montreal each had 94, and the Blue Jackets hold the tiebreaker over the Canadiens. "We're having a lot of fun".

During the first period of the contest in Columbus, Boston managed to score on one of the flukiest goals that you may ever see. Boston's Bruce Cassidy coached his 300th National Hockey League game. Bruins D John Moore missed his fourth game with an upper-body injury.

Marchand, on the other hand, recorded his thirty-sixth goal of the season, but he also assisted on the Pastrnak goal, which was good for his one hundredth point of the season.

NOTE: The Bruins finish the regular season Thursday night at Minnesota and Saturday afternoon at Boston Garden vs Tampa Bay.
