WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets scored twice in a span of 57 seconds in the third period, and they beat the Boston Bruins 3-1 Tuesday night.
It was the first time this season the Jets rallied for a victory after trailing through 40 minutes.
Blake Wheeler's power-play goal at 11:44 of the final period, his 13th of the season, and Evander Kane's 12th at 12:41 propelled the Jets (16-12-2).
Wheeler added an empty-netter with six seconds left in the game.
Boston (19-6-3) took the lead when Brad Marchand scored eight seconds into the second period.
Winnipeg goaltender Ondrej Pavelec showed flashes of brilliance to keep his team in the game until the Jets woke up in the third. He stopped 27 shots.
Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask made 22 saves.
The first period was scoreless, although the Jets did a good job killing two minor penalties.
At the start of the second, Marchand opened the scoring with his 13th goal of the season.
Winnipeg defenseman Zach Bogosian tried to ring the puck around the backboards, but it hit the side of the net, and Marchand jumped on it. The speedy winger picked up the loose puck, stepped in front and deked Pavelec for an unassisted tally.
The Jets had their first power play of the game with just over four minutes left in the middle frame but couldn't orchestrate any kind of an attack, failing to get a shot on Rask.
Winnipeg got its second power-play chance midway through the third, and Wheeler's deflection on a Bogosian point blast beat Rask high.
Less than a minute later, Kane slapped in a rebound off a Grant Clitsome point shot that trickled through Rask's pads and sat in the crease.
Winnipeg killed off a power play right that began 16 seconds after the go-ahead goal, when Clitsome was penalized for tripping Marchand.
