COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Joe Corvo scored his first two goals of the season and Milan Lucic had three assists to lead the Boston Bruins to a come-from-behind 5-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Nathan Horton, Chris Kelly and Zdeno Chara, who left after two periods with an undisclosed lower-body injury, also scored for the Bruins. They bounced back from a rare two-game losing skid after gaining points in 15 games in a row. David Krejci added two assists.

The Blue Jackets, who blew a two-goal lead for the second game in a row, picked up goals from Rick Nash, Jeff Carter and R.J. Umberger.

Tim Thomas was the Bruins’ goaltender for the first two periods but was replaced by Tuukka Rask at the start of the third.

Down 2-0 midway through the first period, the Bruins scored the next three goals. After Umberger tied it up later in the second, Corvo’s second goal, this one on the power play 6:44 into the third period, gave Boston the lead for good. The Bruins had a man advantage in the final minute when Kelly added some insurance.

The Blue Jackets, who had blown a two-goal lead with 1:30 left on Thursday night before losing in overtime, followed that script again in the opening period.

They dominated early, taking a 1-0 lead when Nash took a stretch pass and pulled the puck between his skates while getting behind Chara before beating Thomas. Carter then scored on the power play, going high over Thomas’ shoulder off a deflected pass from Derick Brassard.

Lucic then got into a scuffle with Umberger and was called for both a slash and a crosscheck, giving the Blue Jackets 4 minutes with an extra man. Thomas, who also slashed Umberger in between the penalties on Lucic, made a highlight-quality stop while sprawled on his side in the crease, diving to glove Vinny Prospal’s backhander.

That stop loomed large later in the period. The Bruins needed just 45 seconds to even the score.

Corvo’s hard shot from the right point eluded Curtis Sanford, who was making his career-high 12th consecutive start. Then with under a minute left in the opening period, Horton’s wrister from the high slot made it 2-2.

Lucic added a third helper when Chara scored on a laser from the point while the Bruins were on the power play a minute into the second period. That 3-2 lead held for most of the period until Umberger, came down the left wing and held off defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to muscle the puck into the net.

The period featured chippy play, featuring lots of shoving and taunting.

At the 13:03 mark, Derek Dorsett came in from the left wing all alone on Thomas and made slight contact as Thomas deflected his shot, with Dorsett ending up in the corner in pain. He crawled on all fours for several seconds before finally being helped off the ice while grimacing. He was called for goaltender interference, prompting a loud chorus of boos when the replay was shown on the center-ice monitors.

Corvo’s winner came off a hard shot near the boards from the side of the right circle. It marked his first two-goal game in over a year, since he was playing for Carolina.

NOTES: Columbus C Mark Letestu, acquired in a deal with Pittsburgh last month, played in his 100th career NHL game. … Lucic had three minor penalties in the opening period and another in the second.

… Thomas had 22 saves while surrendering three goals, while Rask stopped all 11 shots he faced.
