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.

Sometimes it takes an anomaly to put things in perspective. Such an anomaly came Friday night when the Bruins, who have been sensational in the third period this season, allowed three unanswered third-period goals to the Sabres, blowing a 2-1 lead and suffering their second regulation loss of the season in the process. 



The Sabres scored three consecutive third-period goals to come from behind and beat the Bruins, 4-2, Friday night at First Niagara Center.

The loss dropped the Bruins to 8-2-2 on the season, with the Sabres having delivered both regulation defeats. Buffalo held the B’s to  just three shots in the final period, outshooting them, 10-3, over the final 20 minutes.

Contract years can be tricky for players. The pressure to perform and cash in with a big payday can be a distraction, and it can throw guys off their game.



WILMINGTON — Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Thursday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena that the B’s expect more out of Tyler Seguin, who has two goals (one of which is an empty-netter) in 11 games this season.

Last season, Seguin led the Bruins with 29 goals. His production has slowed in the early going of the shortened season, with Julien saying the team is eager to see him break out of his slump.

Say this for the Bruins: They know the value of a point. 



The Bruins rallied in the third period to earn a hard point against the Rangers Tuesday night, but fell, 4-3, in a shootout.

The B’completed an improbably comeback as they rallied from a 3-0 defect in the third period, with Brad Marchand tying the game with 42.3 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime.

Nathan Horton had scored less than a minute earlier, with David Krejci getting the B’s on the board at 8:44 of the third. Ryan Callahan scored the game-winner for the Rangers in the shootout.

The Bruins and veteran forward Jay Pandolfo have agreed to a one-year deal, according to a source. The agreement was first reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie, with Pandolfo receiving a prorated $600,000 deal.

Pandolfo, who has been with the Bruins on a tryout since training camp, must clear waivers before he can play with the team. The B’s placed him on waivers on Tuesday and he is scheduled to clear waivers Wednesday at noon.

Tyler Seguin was back on the ice in Tuesday’s morning skate, and with his return from a maintenance day came the return of the Bruins’ regular top-six forwards as the B’s prepare for the Rangers.

The NHL announced Monday that the Bruins-Lightning game that was postponed this weekend has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 25 at TD Garden.

The game, which was scheduled to be played at the Garden on Saturday, was delayed from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. before being postponed due to weather. The makeup game will be played at 7:30 and will now be the B’s last home game of the regular season. The B’s will wrap up their schedule on the road against the Capitals on April 27.
