Bruins top Maple Leafs for third time in four games
Defeat Hutchinson in finale of season series
The Boston Bruins ended the season series with the Toronto Maple Leafs with a 3-2 win at Scotiabank Arena on Saturday.
Sean Kuraly had a goal and two assists, David Krejci and David Pastrnak scored, and Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for the Bruins (26-15-4), who have won six of their past seven games.
“It was two big points, it was no other way to look at it for us tonight,” Kuraly said. “We needed the points, I thought we got out front pretty well, but they’re a good team too and they pushed back pretty well for a lot of the game. I thought it was good of us to hold them off (in the third period) and keep them out of the dangerous areas for the most part.”
Andreas Johnsson and Mitchell Marner scored, and Michael Hutchinson made 26 saves for the Maple Leafs (28-14-2), who are 2-4-0 after a five-game winning streak.
“I think we just leave knowing that we did all the right things,” Marner said. “Mistakes are going to happen; they capitalized on them when they had them. We know what we need to fix, we’ll talk about it (at practice) tomorrow. I thought we played the game we wanted to tonight, we got pucks to the net, just not the result.”
