David Pastrnak scored the eventual game-winning goal in the third period, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets at TD Garden on Saturday afternoon.
The go-ahead tally came on a power play just 3:59 into the third period. A shot attempt by Brad Marchand bounced off a Jets skate and right to Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk, who fed Pastrnak right in his sweet spot. The winger did the rest, burying the one-timer to give the B’s the lead for good.
Pastrnak has now scored 11 goals in his last 10 games. He’s up to 19 on the season as he continues to climb the leaderboard. Alex Ovechkin leads the league with 27 goals.
