Bruins flourish without Khristich

(AP) - Dave Andreychuk is making Bruins fans forget all about Dmitri Khristich. Andreychuk scored two third-period goals to tie the game at 3 and P.J. Axelsson scored with 1:02 remaining in overtime to rally Boston to a 4-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night. Andreychuk is tied with Jaromir Jagr of Pittsburgh for the league lead with 13 goals in 17 games and is only two shy of his total from last season. Andreychuk spoiled the return of former Bruin Khristich, who led the team with 29 goals last year. The team decided not to re-sign Khristich after it refused to pay a salary arbitrator's award of $2.8 million, thus making him a free agent. Khristich signed a four-year deal with Toronto in October. The Bruins then signed Andreychuk as a free agent to make up for the goal-scoring they would lose with Khristich, who scored Toronto's first goal.
