Game Blog: Jets 3, Bruins 1
The Jets score twice in the third period to take a 3-1 victory over the Bruins on Tuesday night.
PRE-GAME NOTES

The Winnipeg Jets (13-11-2) find themselves in a dead heat with the New York Rangers (13-10-2) in the Eastern Conference, both sitting at near identical records with 28 points on the season. The Jets’ toughest opponent in 2011-12 was the Rangers, who they met and lost to four times. The 2012-13 season series is already off to a better start as the Jets have won the only meeting between the clubs – a 4-3 decision at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 26. Evander Kane and Olli Jokinen each scored twice in that game. Entering the Jets-Rangers rematch on Thursday, Kane is on a two-game goal streak.

 

FIRST PERIOD

4:37: Blake Wheeler came within an inch of making it 1-0 Jets as he danced around his check Dennis Seidenberg at the blueline and charged hard to the net. He pulled the puck to his forehand and snapped the puck past Tuukka Rask but unfortunately rang it off the post and it bounced out. Great play by Wheeler but the game remained scoreless.

     Have been some great chances in this one already for Wheeler, Antropov and Bergeron. And the shots are only 3-3.                                        @Ted_Wyman
9:29: James Wright took the game's first penalty of the night for hooking putting the Bruins on the power play. The Jets penalty kill went to work and did what it does best and killed off the two minutes with no harm done. Still 0-0, midway through the first.

Through 20 minutes of play, the Jets and Bruins were stuck in a scoreless tie. Shots were 10-9 in favour of the visiting Bruins. The Jets were on top in the hits column, leading 11-5.

SECOND PERIOD

0:08: Brad Marchand put the Bruins on the board just eight seconds into the second period after an unlucky bounce ended up on his stick right in Pavelec's crease. As the Jets defenseman attempted to zip the puck along the boards behind the net, it caught a seam and bounced out.  Unfortunately, Marchand happened to be in the right place at the right time to bury it. 1-0 Bruins.

     Last time Bruins were here, Marchand scored GWG :36 seconds in to 3rd prd. Tonight, he opens scoring :08seconds in to 2nd                                          @saraorlesky
15:23: The Jets finally got their first power play of the night as Dougie Hamilton went to the box for interference. The best penalty kill in the league went to work, and were successful yet again, shutting the door on the Jets special team and holding onto their one-goal lead.

     I believe the Bruins PK just hit 98% on the road. Came into the game vs at 97.9%, 97.959184 to be exact.                                        @RickRalphTSN

Through 40 minutes, the Jets still trailed 1-0. Shots were 19-16 for the Bruins.

THIRD PERIOD

     Bruins tight checking making it so tough for to even make simple passes in any zone. Stifling.           @Ted_Wyman

11:44: JETS GOAL: With Caron in the box for hooking, the Jets power play went to work...and Blake Wheeler made it count. Dustin Byfuglien sent a point-to-point pass to Zach Bogosian who wristed a hard shot on net. Wheeler was parked in the crease looking for the tip in and connected with the perfect redirection past Rask. 1-1 game with the PP goal.

12:41: JETS GOAL: Evander Kane kept the momentum rolling as he shoveled home a juicy rebound after Grant Clitsome's shot was spit out by Rask. Kane snuck in to bury the aftermath and put the Jets up 2-1.

     The have yet to win a game this season when trailing after 40 minutes (0-7). Could today be the night that changes?           @saraorlesky

19:53: JETS GOAL-EN: Blake Wheeler added the insurance the Jets needed to make it a 3-1 final over the Bruins. Andrew Ladd dished the puck to Wheeler streaking up the middle to bury his 14th of the season and second of the night. Bryan Little picked up his 14th assist on the play.
