Bruins Game 13 Recap: They say if you remember Friday you weren’t actually there.

The Jets haven’t had much of a problem attracting fans since the team moved  back to Winnipeg two years ago. Maybe because there’s not that much to do there? Anyway, the Bruins haven’t won in the Jets’ building since the team headed there from Atlanta. After Friday’s somewhat traumatic collapse, maybe fans could be forgiven for worrying a little about this game.

But maybe the cause for alarm was unfounded? The Jets were on a three-game home losing streak and haven’t really been that good this year. When they took the lead for the second time in the second period, Boston responded with a goal a mere twenty five seconds later and with a second and a half remaining in the period to tie things up before the second intermission. As soon as the third got underway, Brad Marchand was tripped during a rush towards the net and earned Boston a power-play, although Marchand complained that he could’ve been awarded a penalty shot. It didn’t matter too much however, as he was the one who capitalized on the advantage less than half a minute later to give Boston it’s first lead of the night.

Winnipeg pressed for the rest of the game. With less than a second remaining a shot trickled across the goal mouth and from at least the standard television angle appeared to cross the line. However, replays showed that not only did the puck not reach the net before time ran out to end the game, but also that it in fact never crossed the goal line. Boston got away with its first win of the road trip, and now has to take a long flight all the way down to Tampa to face the Lightning on Thursday.
