helped the Winnipeg Jets avoid their first three-game losing streak of the season.Kyle Connor scored back-to-back goals 34 seconds apart in the third period and delivered the only goal in a shootout as the Jets rallied behind goalie Connor Hellebuyck to beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Tuesday night.Hellebuyck stopped 36 shots Jamie Benn Jersey , shutting out the Bruins in the five-minute overtime and all three rounds of the tiebreaker.“I had a couple lucky ones tonight. I will say that,” said Hellebuyck, who stopped Brad Marchand on Boston’s final chance in the shootout. “I’ll definitely take some credit, but I’m not the only one out there and I think everyone out there did their part.”Josh Morrissey also scored for the Jets and Mark Scheifele had two assists as Winnipeg rebounded from a 3-1 loss Monday night at Philadelphia following a nine-day layoff that encompassed the All-Star break.“It’s always tough coming off a break, no matter how much you put into it and stay in shape. Nothing’s like game shape,” Connor said. “I think as the game got on, we started to get our legs under us and just got back to the way we play hockey.”Patrice Bergeron scored twice for the Bruins. David Pastrnak had a goal and an assist, and Marchand assisted on all three goals for Boston in its first game in 10 days.“We just had some breakdowns,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. “You’ve got to be careful you don’t beat yourself and I think there was a little bit of that tonight — no disrespect to Winnipeg. They’re one of the best teams in the National Hockey League http://www.officialstarsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-jason-spezza-jersey , but I think some of it was self-inflicted and the good teams don’t do that.”Cassidy was particularly upset about a sloppy line change that allowed Connor to get free for a quick breakaway after a turnover in the neutral zone. He beat Jaroslav Halak to tie it at 2-all 4:27 into the third period.Connor gave the Jets their first lead 34 seconds later on a one-timer from the slot. Scheifele and Blake Wheeler assisted.Bergeron scored from the slot with 8:21 left in the third for his second of the night but Boston couldn’t get anything else past Hellebuyck, who played college hockey just 30 miles away at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell.“He was great,” Connor said. “It’s good when you’ve got that type of goaltender back there.”Pastrnak put Boston up 2-1 on a power-play goal with 1:27 remaining in the first period on a one-timer from the left point. Bergeron’s one-timer 9:49 into the game gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead.Winnipeg tied it with 5:27 left in the first on Morrissey’s slap shot from the blue line after the Jets won a faceoff during a power play with Zdeno Chara serving a slashing minor. It was only the fifth shot of the period for the Jets.Trent Frederic made his NHL debut for Boston and picked up his first career fighting major in the second period after a scrum in front of the Winnipeg net.Frederic and Brandon Tanev separated from the pack for a 1-on-1 bout that earned the kid a standing ovation from Boston fans — including his parents, who were shown exchanging high-fives in the stands as Frederic headed to the locker room.“I wasn’t really going in trying to get one tonight but it just happened,” Frederic said.The fight occurred with 3:44 left in the second and less than a minute after Boston’s Keven Miller and Adam Lowry exchanged a flurry of punches at the other end.NOTES: Halak started in place of Tuukka Rask, still out with a concussion from a collision with Rangers forward Filip Chytil on Jan. 19. The Bruins placed Rask on injured reserve Monday, retroactive to the day of the injury. … The Bruins posted a photo on Twitter of Frederic, a St. Louis native, as a child posing with former Blues captain David Backes John Klingberg Jersey , his right wing on Boston’s third line Tuesday night.UP NEXTJets: Host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.Bruins: Host the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night. VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) After enduring a long losing streak, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist didn’t much care how the New York Rangers won a hockey game.Lundqvist made a season-high 50 saves but the Rangers still needed John Gilmour’s overtime goal to defeat the Vancouver Canucks 6-5 Wednesday night.”It just feels good to win a game, to sit here and smile for once,” Lundqvist said. ”I am just tired of losing so I don’t care how we win it, just as long as we win it.”The win snapped a seven-game New York losing streak (0-6-1). It also came after the struggling Rangers had jettisoned several of their high-profile players at Monday’s NHL trade deadline.”It doesn’t matter what you go through,” said Lundqvist. ”All the trades . . . was depressing, I got to be honest.”But we have to move past it now and it’s about winning. Winning makes everybody smile and hopefully it can continue.”Gilmour, a rookie defenseman Mattias Janmark Jersey , won the game just 1:22 into overtime when he one-timed a pass from Ryan Spooner. It was Spooner’s third assist of the game.Neither the Canucks (24-32-8) or the Rangers (28-30-6) are likely to make the playoffs but the teams put on a pretty exciting performance.The Rangers took advantage of a couple of deflected shots to roar out to a 3-0 first period lead. They scored goals 43 second apart with just 2:05 gone in the game. But the Canucks refused to roll over. They outshot New York 55-27 and battled back to tie the score three times.”We could have mailed it in, packed it in, and called it a night,” said Vancouver’s Bo Horvat, who had a goal and two assists. ”That’s not the way of our group. We knew we had to pull up our socks and get going again. I thought we did a great job.”Kevin Hayes scored twice for the Rangers. Vladislav Namestnikov, obtained in a multi-player trade from Tampa Bay on Monday, had a goal and an assist. Jimmy Vesey and Mika Zibanejad had the other Ranger goals.Namestnikov had arrived in Vancouver Tuesday night and barely had time to meet his new teammates.”The first period was tough,” he said. ”I didn’t have any legs after a long flight but as the game went on you kind of settle in.”Namestnikov scored his 21st goal of the season on a second-period breakaway after stripping the puck from Canuck captain Henrik Sedin.”Hockey is a fun game, so you have to enjoy it and you have to come to the rink and have fun Radek Faksa Jersey ,” he said. ”Tonight, we did that.”Daniel Sedin had a goal and assist for Vancouver. Nikolay Goldobin also scored for the Canucks, who are (3-8-2) in their last 13 games.Brendan Leipsic, obtained Monday in a trade from Las Vegas, had two assists playing on a line with Horvat and Brock Boeser.”I hadn’t played in a week and half so the first couple of shifts I was just trying to shake a little rust off,” said Leipsic.It was his pass that set up Boeser’s trying goal in the dying seconds of third period.”It allows you some confidence,” he said. ”I haven’t been used in many situations like that this year.”Opportunities like this don’t come around too often. Every opportunity I’m going to get this year I’m going to try and take full advantage of.”Vancouver goaltender Jacob Markstrom was replaced early in the first period after allowing three goals on five shots. His replacement, Anders Nilsson, stopped 19 of 22 shots.NOTES: Forward Jussi Jokinen Authentic Stephen Johns Jersey , who came to Vancouver from Columbus as part of the Motte deal, was a healthy scratch. … The Canucks signed defenseman Alex Biega to a two-year contract extension worth an average annual value of $825,000. … The NHL announced Wednesday that Vancouver will host the 2019 draft. … Vancouver outshot New York 34-17 over two periods. … Daniel Sedin has scored 20 or more goals 11 times in his career.UP NEXT:Rangers: At Calgary on Friday night.Canucks: Hosts Predators on Friday night
