 TORONTO (AP) - The Boston Bruins spoiled the return of playoff hockey to Toronto, scoring two quick goals in the second period in a 5-2 victory over the Maple Leafs on Monday night.
The win came before 19,746 fans inside the Air Canada Centre. Outside, a blue-and-white throng watched on a big screen in Maple Leaf Square as playoff hockey returned to Toronto for the first time since 2004.
After being beaten 4-2 in Boston on Saturday night, the Bruins upped their game. The Leafs, meanwhile, made mistakes and were punished, although they tried to close the gap with a busy third period in which they outshot the Bruins 18-6. The Leafs finished with a 47-38 edge in shots.
Game 4 is Wednesday in Toronto, with Boston leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Boston won the opener 4-1.
