Bruins beat Jets 2-1 in shootout

Published January 22. 2013 4:00AM

Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in the shootout to lift the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday afternoon.

Brad Marchand had the regulation goal for the Bruins (2-0).

Tuukka Rask made 26 saves in regulation and held the Jets to only Blake Wheeler's score in the shootout. Bryan Little, the last shooter, hit the right post to end the game.

Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves in regulation for the Jets, but gave up scores to Boston's first two shooters in the extra session. Chris Thorburn scored for the Jets (0-2).

Seguin moved in, shifted a few times before beating Pavelec with a forehand shot to the glove side. Bergeron, the second shooter, slipped one between the pads.

The Jets played the final 1:11 of regulation and opening 49 seconds of OT on a power play when Johnny Boychuk high-sticked Little. Olli Jokinen's tip-in bid slid just wide of an open side of the net in the closing seconds.

Winnipeg also had a power play for the final 1:28 of overtime when Zdeno Chara was called for holding Wheeler, but it failed to get a decent shot on net despite being set up in Boston's end for a good portion of time.

Winnipeg was 0 for 4 on the power play.

The Bruins had a power play late in regulation when Evander Kane was whistled for goaltender interference. Rich Peverley clanged a slap shot from the left point off the right post seconds after the ensuing faceoff. Nathan Horton had a bid in close, but Pavelec dropped to make a chest save.

Early in the third, Winnipeg's Paul Postma hit the post to Rask's right. Seconds later, the netminder, moving across the crease, made a glove save on Thorburn.
