Marchand's goal in 3rd lifts Bruins over Jets 3-2
BOSTON 3, WINNIPEG 2

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Brad Marchand found some consolation
after being denied what he thought should have been a penalty
shot.



The Bruins' winger scored the game-winner just 27 seconds after
being hauled down on a breakaway and Boston defeated the
Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Sunday.



Just 9 seconds into the third period, Marchand was breaking in
alone on goalie Ondrej Pavelec when he was tripped up by
defenseman Ron Hainsey.



"I was hoping for a penalty shot, so I was a little upset (when
one wasn't called), but we were excited to be on the power
play," Marchand said.



"We knew we could get some chances, and what happened was we
scored."



Patrice Bergeron sent a pass to Marchand and he had room to move
down the middle and put a close backhand shot past Pavelec for
the go-ahead goal 36 seconds into the third.



Bergeron finished with two assists, while Tyler Seguin and
Daniel Paille also scored for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask stopped 22
shots for his seventh win of the season.



Alexandre Burmistrov had a goal and an assist for Winnipeg,
while Evander Kane recorded his fourth goal of the season and
first in nine games.



Pavelec made 23 saves for the Jets, who lost their third
straight and fourth in a row at home - the longest home-losing
streak for the team since the franchise moved from Atlanta
before to last season.



Jets head coach Claude Noel said his players battled and put
their "heart and soul" into the game, but there were costly
breakdowns.



He saw two errors connected to Marchand's goal.



"We ended up taking a penalty, but we should have had the guy to
begin with," Noel said of Marchand being tripped up.



The second mistake was letting Marchand get open for Bergeron's
pass.



"There were some breakdowns, like for example the power-play
goal," Noel continued. "It's a middle drive. That's a play we
practice, we work on all the time. It should have been covered.
But it's not only that play."



Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who assisted on Seguin's goal, was
glad Marchand got "a nice second chance."



"It was the first power play of the game for us and we obviously
wanted to make it count for us," Chara said.



Winnipeg pressed for the tying goal in the dying seconds, but
Rask kept the puck out as Boston won the second game of a
five-game road trip.



Rask said someone got his stick on the puck and then it bounced
off his mask and he heard the buzzer go off to end the game.



"I saw (the puck) going across and then Johnny (Boychuk) just
dove and everybody was scrambling and then I saw it outside the
net, so it bounced our way this time."



After a scoreless first period, the teams scored two goals each,
including a pair in the last 27 seconds that made it 2-2.



With the Jets crowding the Boston net, the rebound from Zach
Bogosian's point shot was flipped in by Burmistrov at 1:43 of
the second period.



Hainsey played a role in Boston's first goal, too.



Seguin was credited with a deflected goal after Chara's shot
from the point eventually bounced into the net off Hainsey's leg
at 10:57 to make it 1-1.



Kane gave the Jets a 2-1 lead at 19:33 of the period when Nik
Antropov sent a backhand shot from the backboards to the front
of the net and Kane snapped in his own rebound.



But with just 2 seconds left on the clock, Paille deflected a
long shot from Boychuk past Pavelec that tied the game heading
into the final period.



"Obviously you don't want to give up a goal, especially after
you score late in the period," Kane said.



"But at the same time, you're still tied going into the third
period at home so it's not the worst situation you can be in. We
had our opportunity."
