Bruins Vs. Maple Leafs Final Score: Seguin, Caron Help B's Sweep Up Leafs, 5-4

Right Wingers Tyler Seguin and Jordan Caron each scored two goals as the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-4 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON.

The Bruins (39-23-3) continued their recent offensive surge on Tuesday night, as their five goals was the fourth game in their last six where they've scored at least three goals. For their efforts tonight, they had two young wingers to thank.

With all of the injuries that have been plaguing the B's on the wings, young Jordan Caron has certainly answered the call on Tuesday night. Starting on the third line, Caron provided an early spark for Boston in the first period as he netted goal number five on a beautiful shot past Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson.

The Maple Leafs (30-29-7) had yet to win a game against the B's this season, and it looked as if their luck was going to turn on Tuesday. Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson got things started for the Leafs early in the first period, as he beat a struggling Tim Thomas for the games first score. Tuesday's goal was only Gunnarsson's third goal of the season.

Toronto's quick scoring continued in the second period as John-Michael Liles got a shot past Thomas with less than a minute past to begin the period. Liles stuck around to help assist a Phil Kessel power play goal later in the period. Even though they had Thomas' number all night, it was just too much B's in the end.

Tyler Seguin made his presence felt in the second period, as he beat Gustavsson twice in the same period for his twenty-third and twenty-fourth goals in a matter of 14 minutes. Caron added his second goal of the game while Chris Kelly got out of his recent funk, scoring his sixteenth goal of the year.

Leafs center Mikhail Grabovski made it interesting in the third, netting goal number 21 to cut the B's lead in half. However, Tim Thomas was able to buckle down for the rest of the period, ending up with 25 saves in 29 chances. With it, the B's took home the win, 5-4.

They return to action on Thursday, as they host the pesky Buffalo Sabres at 7:00 p.m. at TD Garden in Boston.

GAME NOTES

Shawn Thornton dropped the gloves once again, as he and Jay Rosehill battled it out in the second period and each earned five minute majors... Dennis Seidenberg got into a tussle with Colby Armstrong that resulted in a five minute major. Adam McQuaid and Patrice Bergeron joined Seidenberg in the penalty box with minors of their own... Despite an aggressive Leaf attack, Boston ended up outshooting them, 33-29 and out hit them, 38-37...Tim Thomas wasn't great by any means, but was able to make some nice saves towards the end of the third to preserve the win... After much uncertainty, Marty Turco will be joining the Bruins after he cleared waivers.
