The Boston Bruins will head to Winnipeg to battle the Jets as both teams look for their second win of the season at the MTS Centre Monday night.
The Bruins were unable to get anything going their last time on the ice against the Maple Leafs and found themselves on the wrong end of 1 4-1 score Saturday night.
The Jets put up a tough fight against the Wild, but ended up falling short by the score of 4-3.
These two split their series at a game a piece when playing each other last season.
The Boston Bruins were dominated by a talented Maple Leafs team on Saturday night and lost the game by a final of 4-1.
David Pastrnak has been a key ingredient so far through the first couple of games and was able to score the lone goal for Boston.
Through the first two games, the right winger has been able to land the puck in the net three time for the Bruins with two assist to go along with them.
The first round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft was able to score 15 goals last year in 51 games.
Due to an undisclosed injury to Tuukka Rask, the Bruins had Anton Khudobin between the pipes on Saturday night. He was able to stop 19 of 24 shots, but struggled early on.
It is still unclear who will start in the net for Boston on Monday night.
Regardless of who starts, the Boston needs to figure out something on defense as quickly as possible after giving up seven goals through the first two games of the season.
Winnipeg started the season playing catch up, comming back from a three goal deficit to beat the Hurricanes in their season opener. In their game, they blew a two goal lead over the Wild and ended up with a 4-3 loss.
Dustin Byfuglien was a huge part of Winnipeg’s game plan, leading all skaters with 26 minutes of skate time and getting two assists in the process.
First line center Mark Scheifele has gotten off to a great start, contributing three points in two games for the Jets.
After going with Michael Hutchinson in the loss Saturday night, the Jets will more than likely go with Conor Hellebuyck defending the net on Monday.
In flip flop games through the early season, the Jets have both scored and given up eight goals total this year.

Free Boston Bruins vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Hockey Prediction
The Bruins didn’t look very sharp on Saturday night and will still be missing a few key players on Monday.
They have given up seven goals and without Adam McQuaid who usually skates on the blue line, the Jets shouldn’t have much trouble finding the back of the net.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Winnipeg -110
The top six forwards are skating great for Winnepeg and the Jets have been able to score eight points through their first two games. With Hellebuyck between the pipes, I think he plays tough and takes advantage of the opportunity.
I like the Jets on Monday with the total going over 5.5
