Torey Krug scores twice for Bruins in win over Jets
BOSTON — Defenseman Torey Krug had two goals and an assist, and Tuukka Rask made 36 saves on Saturday to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
Daniel Paille also scored for Boston, which has won five of its last seven games heading into a three-game California road trip.
Dustin Byfuglien scored and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 25 shots for Winnipeg. The Jets have lost two in a row since bringing a three-game winning streak into the new year.
Byfuglien gave the Jets the lead midway through the first period, but
Paille tied it before the period was up on an assist from Krug. The
Bruins took the lead 3 minutes into the second when Krug wristed one
through traffic and made it 3-1 four minutes later when he put another
wrist shot on net and it was redirected past the goalie by Jets
defenseman Jacob Trouba.
Boston made it 4-1 when Reilly Smith swept in a rebound midway through the third period.
