Elvis Merzlikins surrendered three goals on 40 shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins. Merzlikins allowed goals to Erik Haula in the first and third periods, with a Brad Marchand goal yielded late in the second period accounting for the remainder of the scoring action on his line. The Bruins were able to pad out the final score with a pair of late empty-net goals. Merzlikins has now surrendered at least three goals in each of his last five trips to the crease. Up next for the Blue Jackets, a Monday rematch with this same Boston squad.
