Jake DeBrusk scored twice, including the go-ahead goal in the third period, David Pastrnak had a hat trick and the Boston Bruins edged the visiting Winnipeg Jets 5-4 Thursday night. DeBrusk, who added an assist, and Pastrnak scored 33 seconds apart in the third as the Bruins rallied from a 4-3 deficit in the final nine minutes to win their second straight since a three-game skid. Pastrnak extended his league lead to 35 goals with his third hat trick of the season.

Kyle Connor, Andrew Copp, Neal Pionk and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets, who lost in the final contest of a four-game road trip (2-1-1). Jaroslav Halak stopped 17 shots for Boston. Laurent Brossoit made 31 saves for Winnipeg.

The Jets went ahead 4-3 when Scheifele backhanded the puck off Halak and into the Bruins' net at 7:50 of the third period. Pastrnak responded at 11:13 off a feed from David Krejci after an initial shot from DeBrusk rebounded in front of Brossoit. DeBrusk's tip-in of a Charlie McAvoy one-timer at 11:46 gave Boston the 5-4 edge. Brossoit was pulled with just over a minute left, but Winnipeg couldn't get an equalizer.

The Bruins went ahead 3-2 with 1:11 remaining in the second period when DeBrusk forced a turnover on a Jets line change and completed the breakaway up ice with a top-shelf snipe over Brossoit's glove. The Jets knotted the score at 3 just 1:03 later on a Pionk one-timer from the blue line on the power play. Winnipeg was on the board first at 7:35 of the first period when Connor cradled the puck back and forth on his stick to shed defender Torey Krug and beat Halak on the backhand. The goal was Connor's eighth in his last nine games.

Pastrnak tied the game at 17:14 off a feed from behind the net from Joakim Nordstrom. After Copp put the Jets up 2-1 on a redirect of a Josh Morrissey blast on the power play at the six-minute mark of the second, Pastrnak struck again at 9:41 when his power-play one-timer bounced off the crossbar and in. Pastrnak extended his points streak to 12 games (nine goals, 10 assists).
