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.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Mike Napoli took grounders at first base for the first time in a Red Sox uniform Sunday and the early reports are very promising, on his hips and his hands.
“He took ground balls after BP today so we’ll gradually build that up,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. ” Fifty ground balls at first base. He’s got very soft hands. Even when you watch him take BP, his movements are smooth. We’re confident he’s going to be a very good first baseman.
There’s something else Napoli can provide, a catcher’s perspective on the American League, having caught with the Angels and Rangers. He’ll be able to contribute to conversations with Jarrod Saltalamacchia and David Ross. How much?
“As he switches to first base fulltime, some of that remains to be seen,” Farrell said....
FORT MYERS, Fla. — The buzz circulated throughout Red Sox camp, and no one could make sense of it. Everyone played the role of speculative arm chair psychologist while wondering: Did you see it? Did you hear about it? What on earth was Alfredo Aceves doing?
Sunday marked the second day of live batting practice, in which pitcher’s face their teammates from behind the protective “L” screen. The exercise is meant to give pitchers an opportunity to build arm strength while introducing a hint of the competitive adrenaline that will characterize games. It also helps hitters to get used to seeing pitches at game speed.
But when it was Aceves’ turn to throw to Jarrod Saltalmacchia,...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — The moment of truth might finally be here for Felix Doubront.
The highly touted lefty, thought to be ready to contribute in the spring of 2011, may be getting one final chance to show what he has in Red Sox camp this spring. But the question hanging over the 26-year-old Venezuelan is: can he stay healthy?
In a three-season career with the Red Sox, Doubront has a 17–19 record with a 4.57 ERA and a 3.17 strikeout-to-walk ratio (228-to-72) in 271 2/3 innings.
Two seasons ago, Doubront’s growth was stunted when he reported to camp out of shape. He subsequently came up with forearm tightness in his throwing arm.
A knee injury slowed him in 2012. Still, Doubront entered last season as a starter and started strong, beating out Aaron Cook and Alfredo Aceves in...
