David Pastrnak's goal sends Bruins former Maple Leafs 3-2



TORONTO (AP) – David Pastrnak scored a cracking goal late in the second period, and the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 on Saturday night.

Sean Kuraly had a goal and two assisted, and David Krecji also scored for Boston.

Tuukka Rask made 30 saves when Bruins won the season series between teams 3-1 and moved two points back from the leaves to second place in the Atlantic Division.

Mitch Marner and Andreas Johnsson scored for Toronto Michael Hutchinson stopped 26 shots.

Bruins hit Leafs 5-1 at November 10th. Toronto won 16 days later with a 4-2 victory at the Scotiabank Arena. December 8, Boston won 6-3 in a game that contained 98 minutes of penalty.

Kuraly intercepted a soft pass behind the network of Leaf's defender Nikita Zaitsev and fed Pastrnak, who scored his 26th goal for the season past a surprised Hutchinson with 1

3.7 seconds remaining in the interim period.

Pastrnak has 19 points (11 goals, eight assist) in 15 career games against Toronto – including six goals and three assists in four outings this season.

Hutchinson encrypted to stop a chance of Pastrnak early in the third period to keep Toronto in it.

Auston Matthews had an excellent opportunity to tie with four minutes to walk, but shot a backhander wide.

Toronto pressed late with an extra attacker, but Boston was able to hold on.

Boston led 1-0 after the first, but the leaves were just about 7:37 of the other at a strange game. Johnsson's quick shot went out of Rask, off Bruin's defense master Kevan Miller, who fought Matthews in front and dribbled into the Boston network for the wing 10.

Toronto's fighting game – 1 for 36 over his last 13 games when one removed 3 -to-3 action against Florida on December 20 – came to life 1:53 later and gave Leafs their first leg when Marner blew a shot that hit Quick on the short side. It was Marner's 17th.

But Bruins capitalized on another gaff of the leaves at 14:47, when Jake Gardiner fancied on a breakout pass before he got the puck stolen by Chris Wagner who fed Kuraly in the castle. He scored his fifth.

Hutchinson, who spent three seasons in minors with Bruins after getting the draft 77. gathered in 2008, got his fifth straight start to Toronto with No. 1 netmember Frederik Andersen – since December 28 with a loin injury – out with influenza and backed up Garret Sparks still back from a concussion.

Boston's top line of Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand entered Saturday with a total of 117 points in 122 regular-season games against Toronto. The trio burned the leaves to 30 points in the last season's first round series.

Krejci opened the score with 1:39 back in the first period. Kuraly returned to the offensive zone and fed Krejci, who scored past Hutchinson for his ninth.

Bruins had two golden opportunities to take the lead early, but Marchand missed a big open net in the first minute of the game before Bergeron kicked wide for 2 to 1 minutes later.

Quick, who came in 4-0-0 with a .959 save percent, a 1.23 goal vs. average and a shutout in his last four starts, stopped Kadri on a lap before Zach Hyman's deflection went straight.

NOTES

Charlie McAvoy, who missed 20 games with concussion earlier this season, returned to the Bruins lineup after missing the last seven with a foot injury. Boston had its top blue-line corps dressed up for the first time this season. Pastrnak and Krejci are the only players on the route to play in each of their team's 45 games this season. … Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield was present.
