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.
