WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to Boston at the MTS Centre, Thursday night.

Defenceman Dustin Byfuglien was caught gambling in the offensive zone, leading to the winner by Loui Eriksson less than two minutes into the four-on-four.

The teams were tied, 1-1, early in the third period when the Jets' Mark Scheifele scored his first goal of the pre-season on the power play.

Scheifele used his speed to pick up a shoot-in off the end boards, made a quick move and beat Boston goalie Niklas Svedberg, just over four minutes into the third.

The Bruins tied it just two minutes later, Ryan Spooner’s wrist shot from well out getting past fellow Bruin Matt Fraser and beating Ondrej Pavelec.

The Jets then ran into penalty trouble, but killed off minors to Michael Frolik, Adam Pardy and Evander Kane.
