The Boston Bruins clinched a spot in the NHL playoffs but their celebrations were muted after Jaden Schwartz got his second of the night as the St Louis Blues recorded an overtime win.

The Bruins only needed a point to become the third team to clinch a berth and Ryan Donato put the side 1-0 up after 10:12 in the first.

Schwartz got his first of the night and 21st of the season to draw things level with 10 minutes to go and then found a winner after carrying the puck from one end of the rink to the other and firing a wrist-shot for the score.
