Blake Wheeler used to be with the Bruins, and he seems to delight in reminding them of that fact whenever the two teams meet.
Wheeler scored two goals, including an empty-netter that clinched the game, as the Winnipeg Jets came back to beat the Bruins 3-1 on Tuesday night. It was Boston’s fifth loss of the year in which they led heading into the third period, and this loss hurts all the more considering it was a chance for the B’s to tie Montreal in the Northeast Divison standings.
Instead, it was Winnipeg making noise in the Southeast, so NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Wheeler our “Divisional Downer” player of the game. Who’s yours?
