Milan Lucic scored next on a long slap shot that deflected off Patrik Berglund’s stick.
Chris Stewart put the Blues on the board, picking up his own rebound in front of a crowed net.
With the score tied at 2-2, Chris Kelly scored with less than a minute to play, giving the Bruins the momentum as they skated off the ice.
