Nathan Horton's second goal of the game keyed Boston's three-goal third period as the Bruins beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 Tuesday night.
After Horton scored 8 seconds into the final period, Tyler Seguin and Benoit Pouliot followed over the next 6:33 to lift Boston in a game that featured a penalty shot by both teams.
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask stopped Chris Thorburn in the first period and Shawn Thornton beat Winnipeg's Ondrej Pavelec in the second for a short-handed goal after he came flying out of the penalty box and grabbed a loose puck.
The last time two teams had a penalty shot in the same game was Minnesota at Phoenix on Oct. 8, 2005. The Bruins had a penalty shot for the second straight game after Daniel Paille failing to convert Saturday against Vancouver.
Andrew Ladd, former Bruin Blake Wheeler and Eric Fehr scored for the Jets, who got two assists apiece from defensemen Zach Bogosian and Tobias Enstrom and ended a four-game road trip with a 1-3 record.
