The Bruins started a new winning streak thanks in large part to three unanswered goals, notching a 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night at TD Garden. Leading the way was Chris Kelly, who notched a pair of goals in the second period.
The victory gives the B's 11 wins in their last 12 games, improving Claude Julien's team to 14-7-1. The Bruins have now won nine straight home games against the former Atlanta Thrashers organization.
After two first period goals from the Jets against Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara got things going for the B's by cutting the lead in half heading into the first intermission.
Kelly then took over in the second, netting a short-handed goal against Jets' goalie Ondrej Pavelec before claiming the game-winner off of assists from Benoit Pouliot and Rich Peverley. Brad Marchand provided insurance with an empty net goal.

The Bruins overcame a two-goal deficit for the second time in three games and defeated the Jets, 4-2, at TD Garden Saturday.
Both Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley had two-point games, with Kelly scoring two goals, one of which was shorthanded.
The Jets jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the game's first 10 minutes when they got goals 39 seconds apart from Evander Kane and Dustin Byfuglien. Zdeno Chara got the B's on the board with a slapshot on the power play later in the period, with Kelly scoring two goals to tie the game and give Boston the lead. Brad Marchand picked up an empty-netter with 1:09 remaining in regulation. Kelly then had a chance at the hat trick with Ondrej Pavelec once again on the bench, but missed the empty net.
Tim Thomas picked up his 11th win of the season, and the Bruins now have points in 12 straight games (10-0-1). The B's will next play Wednesday in Toronto.

Chung has been struggling with a foot injury he suffered in the waning moments of the Nov. 6 loss to the Giants, and had missed the last two games as a result. Connolly was on the injury list this week with a groin injury, while McCourty suffered a shoulder injury on Nov. 13 against the Jets when he collided with teammate Sterling Moore and has been out since then. And Ochocinco made his first appearance of the season on the injury list this week with a hamstring problem.
