With the Jets on the power play looking to take the lead in a 1-1 game, rookie Patrik Laine's soft blue line pass was picked off by Logan Couture, who sprung Boedker with the breakaway. The speedy Danish forward made no mistake for his ninth goal of the season at the 7:26 mark of the final frame.
Bryan Little had a glorious chance to put his team in the lead shortly before Boedker scored as he deked out Aaron Dell but slid the puck through the crease.
