BOSTON — Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored in the shootout to lift the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday.

Brad Marchand had the regulation goal for the Bruins (2-0).

Tuukka Rask made 26 saves in regulation and held the Jets to only Blake Wheeler’s score in the shootout. Bryan Little, the last shooter, hit the right post to end the game.

Ondrej Pavelec made 26 saves in regulation for the Jets, but gave up scores to Boston’s first two shooters in the extra session. Chris Thorburn scored for the Jets (0-2).

Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg missed the game with an undisclosed lower body injury.

RED WINGS 4, BLUE JACKETS 3 (SO)

In Columbus, Ohio, Swiss rookie Damien Brunner scored in the fourth round of the shootout to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night before 19,206, the largest regular-season crowd at Nationwide Arena in the Blue Jackets’ 11-plus seasons.

ISLANDERS 4, LIGHTNING 3

In Uniondale, N.Y., David Ullstrom scored early in the third period, and New York held off Tampa Bay.

Coach Jack Capuano returned to the Islanders and guided them to their first win of the season. He missed the opening-night loss to New Jersey on Saturday because of surgery to remove a kidney stone.
