The Boston Bruins got back into the win column by defeating the Winnipeg Jets, 3-0, at Canada Life Centre on Thursday.

The B’s improved to 51-11-5 on the season while the Jets fell to 38-28-3.

Despite being outshot 36-24, Boston limited the high-scoring chances and odd-man rushes which was something head coach Jim Montgomery talked about after the 6-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday.

The Bruins’ penalty kill got back to the standard they set all season, preventing Winnipeg from scoring on five attempts and only giving up 10 shots.

— Jeremy Swayman turned away all 36 shots he faced for his third shutout of the season.

— Trent Frederic got Boston on the board just 50 seconds into the first period with his 15th goal of the season.

— Pavel Zacha scored his 18th goal of the season, which is a new career high for the speedy winger.

David Pastrnak was given +105 odds that he would score a goal, and although he didn’t, $100 betters would have earned a $205 payout.

The Bruins head to Minnesota to take on the Wild Saturday afternoon. Puck drop from Excel Energy Center is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET. You can watch the game, plus an hour of pregame coverage, on NESN.
