Defenceman Torey Krug has 2 goals, assist in Bruins' 4-1 victory over Jets

BOSTON - Defenceman 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 defenceman Jacob Trouba.

Boston made it 4-1 when Reilly Smith swept in a rebound midway through the third period.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
