Matt Duchene is officially a Columbus Blue Jackets legend.
It took two overtimes, but Duchene's winner that beat Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask five-hole at 3:42 of the second session of extra hockey was all that the Jackets needed to even the series and send it back to Columbus.
Take this in because this is a hell of a beaut – the kick to tape doesn't get much better. It's a play that elite hockey players and only elite hockey players like Matt Duchene can make.
“Bread took a great shot,” Duchene said on ice after the game. “It came to me and I was just able to find a hole.”
The center has four goals and four assists in six games for the Blue Jackets in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Now the Blue Jackets head back to Nationwide Arena for Game 3 for a chance to take the series lead. Look at what a good bounce can do for a team.
