Maple Leafs fall to Bruins 5-2

The Bruins outshot the Leafs 40-32

(The Canadian Press)

The depleted Boston Bruins, in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons the previous night, rallied with three goals in the second period to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 on Sunday.
Coming off an ugly, violent Saturday night win over Pittsburgh, the Bruins (20-8-2) were without suspended forward Shawn Thornton and the injured Loui Eriksson and Chris Kelly, among others.
It showed as the Leafs, who beat Ottawa 4-3 in a shootout Saturday, controlled the early going and led 1-0 after the first. But the Bruins' three-goal outburst in the second period, including a pair of power-play goals in a 94-second stretch, left the Leafs in their wake.
Toronto, which also gave up two power-play goals against the Senators, went 0 for 4 on its power play Sunday. The Bruins outshot the Leafs 40-32.
Peter Holland and Jay McClement scored for Toronto (16-12-3) before an announced crowd of 19,165.
Carl Soderberg, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller, Jarome Iginla and Patrice Bergeron _ with an empty-net goal coming out of the penalty box with 11 seconds remaining _ scored for Boston, which came into the game under the spotlight thanks to Thornton's meltdown at TD Garden.
