Erik Johnson’s stumble in overtime nearly led to the winning goal for Winnipeg, but his goaltender bailed him out.

Given another opportunity, Johnson didn’t stumble again.

The Avalanche defenseman scored on a breakaway with 9.9 seconds remaining on the clock in OT, Jonathan Bernier stopped 22 shots after taking over for an injured Semyon Varlamov in the second period and Colorado beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon also scored to help the Avalanche win their third straight.

Johnson scored the winner when Rantanen poked the puck ahead to him and he put it past Connor Hellebuyck, one of the stingiest goaltenders in the NHL of late.

Hellebuyck and the Jets dropped to 0-6 in overtime this season — 1-7 factoring in shootouts.

“Sick of these overtime losses,” Hellebuyck said. “I thought we deserved more.”

After being outshot 12-9 in the first period, the Bruins held the Islanders to just 14 shots through the final 40 minutes and beat them for the second time in two meetings this season.

“We just tried to stick to our game plan and our systems,” Boston’s Sean Kuraly said. “Be quick through the neutral zone and hold onto pucks down low, and be a good puck possession team. I think for most of the game we did that.”
