WINNIPEG -- Rookie Winnipeg Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson couldnt stop grinning after his first NHL win Thursday night. That will happen when its a 2-1 shootout victory against the NHL-leading Boston Bruins, a team that cast him aside. Hutchinson, who made 32 saves in only his second NHL game, was drafted by the Bruins in the third round (77th overall) in the 2008 entry draft and was signed by the Jets prior to this season. "You really want that first win against them, kind of show them what they gave up on," said the 24-year-old. Bryan Little scored in the shootout in what was Winnipegs (36-35-10) last home game of the season. They finish the schedule Friday in Calgary. Little beat Bruins netminder Chad Johnson with a low shot between his pads, the only scorer in three rounds. Olli Jokinen missed for Winnipeg, while Reilly Smith, Ryan Spooner and Brad Marchand missed for the Bruins. Marchand did score Bostons only goal of the game in the first period. Jets forward Evander Kane took a pass from leading scorer Blake Wheeler and tied the game 1-1 with a wrist shot that beat Johnson over his glove with 1:57 left in the third period. Just a couple of minutes earlier, Kane had hit the post after fans started chanting "Go Jets Go" to try to propel their team to a victory. Jokinen was called for holding with 40 seconds left in overtime, but Hutchinson made a snapping glove save on a blast from David Krejci with seven seconds left to send it to a shootout. "He was outstanding," Wheeler said of Hutchinson, whose first NHL game was a 1-0 loss on Monday against Minnesota. "He really kept us in the game. They had some point-blank opportunities to add to their lead and he kind of put us away and he gave us an opportunity to tie the game." Johnson made 36 saves and Marchand scored his 24th goal of the season at 10:12 of the first period for the Bruins (53-18-9). While Boston has clinched top spot in the Eastern Conference and have 115 points, three ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks, they have just one win in their last five games (1-1-3). Head coach Claude Julien was none too happy with the latest effort. "We looked like a disinterested team tonight," Julien said. "(The Jets) were determined to have a good, strong finish here and they did. They were the better team tonight from start to finish. "I thought our goaltender was the reason we were able to come out of here with at least a point." The fans gave the Jets a standing ovation after the game, and the players skated to centre ice and raised their sticks toward the sold-out crowd of 15,004 at MTS Centre. It was the third straight season the local fans bid farewell to the Jets without watching a playoff game, and the seventh season in a row the former Atlanta franchise has missed the post-season. "They show up every night and cheer us on hard and were very appreciative of that," Wheeler said. "The results arent where we want them to be so the only thing we can do is try to work on that and improve in the future." Wheeler recorded his 41st assist of the season and 64th point, which bumped up the career-high points hes set this season. The Bruins host Buffalo on Saturday and finish the season Sunday on the road in New Jersey. Marchand agreed with his coach that the team wasnt fine-tuning itself for the playoffs. "It felt more like an exhibition game out there," Marchand said. "The only thing that would have impressed was 1-0 till the last minute. We can play much better hockey than that." Marchand opened the scoring when he used Smiths dumped-in shot off the back boards to beat Hutchinson with a backhand shot. Jarome Iginla almost added to the lead with a breakaway, but Hutchinson came out and stopped the wrist shot with just under four minutes to go in the period. Winnipeg had a 35-31 edge in shots of goal after regulation. "He read those seams perfectly," Jets head coach Paul Maurice said of Hutchinson, who will be returned to the St. Johns IceCaps for their AHL playoffs. "His push was perfect, square on that shot, and he knew where that was going. The players played as hard as they could to give him a chance to be great and win and thats what happened. He was great, we win." Notes: Boston rested centre Patrice Bergeron and defenceman Zdeno Chara. a Winnipeg was without captain Andrew Ladd (elbow) and defenceman Dustin Byfuglin (upper-body), who wont play the final game. Nike Air Max Nederland . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. Nike Air Max Nederland Bestellen .J. Mayo made seven three-pointers and scored 25 points, Ersan Ilyasova added 20, and the Milwaukee Bucks placed seven players in double figures in a 130-110 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost their 11th straight game on Monday night. http://www.airmaxnederland.nl/. Ferguson told Uniteds in-house TV channel on Saturday that he has no immediate plans to walk away from the game, and that he still hungers for more trophies even after 25 years in charge of the club. Nike Air Max Aanbieding . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. Nike Air Max Outlet Nederland .Y. - Terry and Kim Pegula have no immediate plans to tinker with their new NFL team.3. Being an Edmonton native you are a noted Oilers fan, but would you throw your jersey on the ice? Never in a million years. I think the people who do it are ridiculous and not actual fans. It just makes the whole mess over there look even worse. If you dont like the team, dont buy a ticket. 4. You have taken trips as far as Kuwait for work, if you had your choice where would you go next? Costa Rica or Jamaica 5. Other than you, which SC host is the best athlete? I really like the way you phrased that question. There are a few SC hosts who like to talk a big game but Ive yet to see any of them in real action so I may have to pass on this question until we can hold some sort of track meet in the parking lot and find out for certain. 6. Can you give us an argument for and against Selfies? Do I have to? 7. Can you provide us with a Selfie? No. 8. Who is your biggest role model in the broadcast industry? Honestly, I work with some pretty amazing people every day at TSN who Im always learning from. 9. Do youu have any cool nicknames? Not really but Ive always wanted one! Most common is Stash or Stanley but I wouldnt exactly call those cool.dddddddddddd 10. Whats the one video on YouTube you cant get enough of? I dont really pay much attention to YouTube. 11. Now that you ran a half-marathon, any plans for a full one? I dont think so… 42km just seems crazy to me. But Im considering doing another half in Nashville this fall! (Im not that excited about the run actually but I love country music and it would be great to go to a Predators game.) 12. If the Oilers win the Stanley Cup, what will you do? If Im not living in an old folks home by then (kidding), Id throw on my Oiler jersey, fly straight back to Edmonton, and party for weeks on end. 13. What should the tourism slogan for Edmonton be? Dont knock it til you try it! 14. Can you go BarDown? If you saw the way Brian Burke and Tiger Williams were yelling at me during our floor hockey game with the Canadian troops in Kuwait you wouldnt be asking me that!
