following Loui Eriksson’s equalizer that began the barrage.

Hamilton registered three assists in Boston’s fourth straight victory and 13th
consecutive triumph over the Oilers, who last defeated the Bruins in October

straight and now 0-4-1 on the road this season. Ben Scrivens stopped 27-of-31
shots in defeat.
