The Bruins bounced back, and in a big way Friday night in Winnipeg, as they blew a two-goal lead in a span of 1:25 in the third period, but rebounded with a pair of goals to sink the Jets by a 4-2 final at Canada Life Centre.
Boston’s night started with a pair of goals in 2:30 in the second, with strikes from Brad Marchand and then a pretty net-front finish from Trent Frederic, and in a second period that saw the B’s outshoot Winnipeg by a 22-to-4 mark.
But when Adam Lowry and Nikolaj Ehlers knotted things up at 2-2 in the third, it was Taylor Hall who played hero for the B’s, with a power-play putaway on the Jets’ Connor Hellebuyck with 4:47 left in the third.
The Bruins sealed the deal on a victory with a Charlie McAvoy empty-net score with 31 seconds left in regulation.
Bruins center Charlie Coyle led all Boston skaters with three assists by the night’s end, while the Bruins’ Linus Ullmark stopped 27-of-29 shots faced for his 19th victory of the season.
The Bruins will get back to work Monday night in Montreal.
