The Boston Bruins will be in Winnipeg Thursday’s night to battle the Jets for the second and final time this season. The teams have not faced-off in a great while. Boston beat Winnipeg back on Jan. 4 at TD Garden, 4-1. Torey Krug scored two goals in the win.
The Bruins are playoff bound and will look to extend their lead in the race for the President’s Trophy. They hold a slim lead over the Anaheim Ducks in points, 114-112.
Destined for an early offseason, the Jets will be playing for pride, as uncertainty surrounds the club moving forward. Winnipeg has played average hockey all season.

The Jets leading scorer, Blake Wheeler, has notched three assists in last two games. He has a total of 67 points on the season.
