WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Patrice Bergeron and Jake DeBrusk scored power-play goals and the Boston Bruins beat Winnipeg 2-1 on Friday night, extending the Jets’ losing streak to five games.
David Pastrnak had two assists for Boston. Tuukka Rask, returning for the first time since suffering a concussion on Jan. 14, made 37 saves.
“Rask was terrific,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “He’d missed some time. Got hit in the head with one (puck tonight), so clearly that you’re always worried because he’s come off a concussion. Played well, tracked pucks well.”
DeBrusk was left open on his winner after Jets defenseman Anthony Bitetto and forward Andrew Copp literally got tangled up and fell.
“I’ve never seen that, a skate loop,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. “It’s Andrew’s skate lace that catches the back of the guard on Bitetto’s skate and pulls him down as they lock skates.
