The Winnipeg Jets beat the Boston Bruins in the regular season opener 6-2, scoring 6 goals in the finale 35 minutes of game play.
The win comes as the first time that the Jets have beat the Bruins on the road since 2007. At that time, the Jets were still the Atlanta Thrashers. That game, the Thrashers won 3-2 with Boston goals from Marco Strum and Petr Kalus. The Bruins netminder, Joey McDonald, stopped and impressive 37 of 40 shots by the Thrashers.
Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara, the only current Bruins players from the 2006-07 team, both put up assists during the game. There were some very entertaining fights for the fans as well.
