WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — David Pastrnak scored his team-leading fourth goal of the season as the Boston Bruins beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 on Monday night.

The 20-year-old Pastrnak extended his point streak to three games while suiting up in his 100th career game.

Winnipeg (1-2-0) captain Blake Wheeler opened the scoring 10 minutes into the game.


Boston (2-1-0) trailed for all of 19 seconds, however, as Dominic Moore tied things up at 10:19 of the first period.

Rookie Brandon Carlo’s first career goal added insurance for the Bruins with 1:59 remaining in the third period and Zdeno Chara scored an empty-netter inside the final minute.

Boston’s Tuukka Rask turned away 34 of 35 shots, while Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck stopped 21 of 24.
