Loui Eriksson came into Saturday scoreless through three contests with the Bruins, knowing the guy he was traded for — Tyler Seguinnotched a four-point game on Friday.

So, Eriksson decided to do something about it.

The Swedish winger scored his first goal as a Bruin and made it count, registering the game-winner in Boston’s 3-1 victory over Columbus at Nationwide Arena.

Eriksson finished with what many in attendance called his best game in a Boston uniform, putting a team-high six shots on goal in just under 19 minutes of action.

The 28-year-old finished as the game’s third star, and Boston moved to 3-1-0 on the year.

    I’m guessing he celebrates tonight with his wife and kids and maybe a glass of wine. How many shots you think Seguin did last night? Just saying…

      Try harder buddy. He was on a plane an hour after the game ended. He has teammates to actually hang out with in Dallas, he doesn’t need to hang out with a bunch of BU alcoholic kids anymore.

    But his Mom said he didn’t party with the college kids. Someone needs to get their stories straight.

    All about priorities. I’m sure Seguin will one day tone it down & blossom as a player. I got no ill will toward him. Just think it wasn’t the right fit. Trade was good for both sides.

    Yeah. The whole Bs team was on a little scoreless streak there. Four periods until they scored, including three at home.

    It’ll come together.
