BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins snapped back from their Black Friday loss to the Detroit Red Wings with a 4-2 come-from-behind win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night at TD Garden.

Evander Kane and Dustin Byfuglien scored two goals in a span of 39 seconds to give the Jets an early 2-0 lead in the first period. It was the second-quickest pair of goals allowed by the Bruins this season. Zdeno Chara responded with a goal later in the period to cut the lead to 2-1.

In the second period, Chris Kelly scored a shorthanded goal (assisted by Rich Peverley) to tie the game at two apiece. With that play, Peverley recorded his 100th career assist. Nine minutes later, Kelly followed up with his second goal of the game from Benoit Pouliot and, once again, Peverley.The last time Kelly scored two goals in a single game was November 19 against the New York Islanders. He had not scored a goal since then.

Brad Marchand iced the Bruins win with an unassisted empty-netter with 1:09 to go in the third period.

The Bruins will play the Maple Leafs on November 30 in Toronto.
