The Bruins have developed a great habit of scoring goals in quick bunches, but last night gave up 2 goals in 39 seconds in the first period to fall behind the Winnipeg Jets 2-0. But they fought back and scored the next four, as Chris Kelly continued to contribute offensively with two goals and Brad Marchand iced the game with an empty-netter.
Old friends Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart made their return to the Garden, but neither was able to hurt their old team. It was the first time the Bruins have faced the new Winnipeg Jets, and though the uniforms were different didn't this feel like a Bruins-Thrashers game?
