Bruins beat Jets 2-1 in shootout
BOSTON 2, WINNIPEG 1 (OT)

BOSTON (AP) -- Patrice Bergeron showed why he's more than just an
offensive forward.



Bergeron helped kill off a large portion of short-handed time in
overtime before he finished off his day with a goal in the
shootout, leading the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the
Winnipeg Jets on Monday afternoon.



Tyler Seguin scored the other shootout goal and Brad Marchand
had the regulation goal for the Bruins (2-0).



Boston was short-handed for 2 minutes, 17 seconds of overtime
after playing the final 71 seconds of regulation short-handed.



Bergeron felt like the solid penalty killing was a simply a
matter of keeping things easy.



"We've stuck to our system," he said. "I guess we've kept it
simple."



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 goalie's 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.



"I think we were playing aggressive right off the bat," Bergeron
said. "We didn't give them time to set up the plays they wanted
because we were so aggressive."



Boston coach Claude Julien felt his team's penalty killing unit
led to the win.



"That's what made the difference," he said. "I thought our PK
was good. (Bergeron) and (Chris Kelly) were breaking up plays
when they got over the blue line."



Winnipeg was 0 for 4 on the power play.



"It's disappointing when you get those opportunities in the end
there," Jets forward Evander Kane said. "Myself, I can't be
making those bad passes and not generating anything. That's
something that we're going to have to get better at."



The Bruins had a power play late in regulation when 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.



In a contest that lacked the emotion and fan enthusiasm of
Boston's opening 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Saturday,
both teams seemed lackluster for long stretches in the first and
second periods.



Coming of a 4-1 loss at home against Ottawa in their season
opener, the Jets scored their first even strength goal of the
season when Thorburn scored off the rebound of Postma's shot
from the point 1:58 into the game. The assist was Postma's first
NHL point.



Boston tied it 1-all when Seguin stole Jokinen's clearing pass
near Winnipeg's blue line, broke in on the right wing and fed a
streaking Marchand. who redirected the puck past Pavelec from
the low slot with just under 6 minutes left in the opening
period.



The Bruins had a few excellent scoring chances late in the
second. Defenseman Aaron Johnson hit the post with just over 4
minutes to play. The Bruins best opportunity came when Seguin
collected the rebound of Bergeron's shot in the front of the
net, shifted to his right and missed an open net with a little
over 2 minutes to play.



The Jets, who had a pair of power play chances in the second,
nearly regained the lead early in the second, but Jokinen hit
the side of an open net while skating on a man advantage.



Rask made a glove save of Kyle Wellwood on a clean breakaway
midway into the opening period.
