Bruins Vs. Maple Leafs Score Update: B's Tack On Four More Goals, Lead 5-3

Through 40 minutes at Air Canada Centre, the Boston Bruins tacked on four more goals as they lead the Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-3.

Early on in the period, the Leafs appeared to maybe have a run going, as John-Michael Liles scored on a power play goal to give the Leafs the then 2-1 advantage. Brad Marchand was the man to go for the B's, as he was given two minutes for hooking.

The B's quickly responded as Tyler Seguin netted goal number 23, with assists coming from David Krejci and Zdeno Chara. Chris Kelly made it back-to-back goals for Boston, as he scored just seconds later to give the B's the 3-2 lead after just three minutes. Oh how hockey games can turn in the blink of an eye!

After a five minute major was given to Dennis Seidenberg following a fight with Colby Armstrong, old friend Phil Kessel evened the score against his former team on the extended power play to make it three all.

Jordan Caron, who scored the first Bruins goal of the night, struck again in the second period with goal number two on the night and six on the season. Joining the two goal party was Seguin, who capped off a four goal Bruins period.

While it's not been his best night (if not last couple of days), B's goalie Tim Thomas has been solid, stopping 14 of 17 Maple Leaf shots. Jonas Gustavsson has been a little less fortunate, as he's let by five total goals and has saved 19 of 24 Bruin shots.
