BOSTON – Nathan Horton's second goal of the game keyed Boston's three-goal third period as the Bruins beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 Tuesday night.
After Horton scored 8 seconds into the final period, Tyler Seguin and Benoit Pouliot followed over the next 6:33 to lift Boston in a game that featured a penalty shot by both teams.
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask stopped Chris Thorburn in the first period and Shawn Thornton beat Winnipeg's Ondrej Pavelec in the second for a short-handed goal after he came flying out of the penalty box and grabbed a loose puck.
The last time two teams had a penalty shot in the same game was Minnesota at Phoenix on Oct. 8, 2005. The Bruins had a penalty shot for the second straight game after Daniel Paille failing to convert Saturday against Vancouver.
Andrew Ladd, former Bruin Blake Wheeler and Eric Fehr scored for the Jets, who got two assists apiece from defensemen Zach Bogosian and Tobias Enstrom and ended a four-game road trip with a 1-3 record.
Horton, who has five goals in the last four games, directed home a pass from David Krejci to tie the score at 3-3 in the opening seconds of the third. Seguin then scored the tiebreaker at 3:06 and Pouliot added a power-play goal at 6:41.
Rask came in with three shutouts in his last four starts while stopping 128 of the last 129 shots he faced. He led the NHL in goals-against average and save percentage, but yielded three goals on 24 shots in the first two periods. He then shut the door as his teammates took over at the other end, with 22 shots in the third period.
Krjeci, who has a nine-game points streak, and Bergeron both had two assists for the Bruins, 24-4-1 since starting the season 3-7.
Thornton's goal, on the first penalty shot of his career, was his fourth tally of the season.
Rask stopped Thorburn, still looking for his first goal of the season, with 5:57 gone in the first period. It was the first penalty shot against the Bruins this season, while Winnipeg fell to 0 for 3.
NOTES: Bruins LW Brad Marchand served the first of a five-game suspension by the NHL for clipping and injuring Vancouver's Sami Salo on Saturday. "I'm obviously a little disappointed," he said Tuesday. "I wasn't expecting as many games as I got, but that's the decision and we just have to move on." Bruins fans chanted "We Want Marchand on more than one occasion. ... Winnipeg D Dustin Byfuglien missed his seventh straight game due to a lower-body injury. ... Jets LW Tanner Glass took a stick from Joe Corvo to the face in the first period and didn't return.
