The Bruins snapped their two-game losing streak Sunday night, coming from behind to beat the Jets, 3-2, in Winnipeg.

The Jets opened the scoring in the second period with Alex Burmistrov’s second of the season, with Tyler Seguin redirecting a Zdeno Chara wrist shot past Ondrej Pavalec to tie it at one. Evander Kane made it 2-1 in the final minute of the second, but Daniel Paille redirected a Johnny Boychuk past Pavelec with 1.5 seconds remaining in the period.

With Ron Hainsey in the box for tripping, Brad Marchand broke the tie in the third period’s opening minute for his team-leading eighth goal of the season. The Jets made a last-second push as a Zach Redmond bid slid along the goal line but did not go in.

Tuukka Rask made 21 saves on 23 shots in the win, as the B’s improved to 9-2-2 on the season. They’ll next play Thursday night against the Lightning in Tampa Bay.
