Bruins Vs. Maple Leafs: B's Take 3-2 Lead As Top Line All Has Points After Two

The second period was just as entertaining as the first, but without as many penalties. The Bruins were the first to score in the second frame, and it was courtesy of David Krejci. His fourth goal of the year came off his snap shot and as he crashed the net, he just slipped it past Jonas Gustavsson's glove side.

Nathan Horton was credited with an assist which means the entire first line has a point this game. After talk of trades have been happening all week, it's the only line that has been very visible all game.

Joffery Lupul scored for the Leafs three-and-a-half minutes later after netting a feed from none other than Phil Kessel. That tied the score at two.

But the Bruins had one more left in them before the end of the period. Captain Zdeno Chara wristed a shot from the high slot past Gustavsson for the third Boston goal, the assists coming from Horton and Krejci.

The goaltenders weren't as busy this period with Thomas only seeing eight shots, and Toronto letting by seven to Gustavsson.
