After not scoring in the first period, the Bruins got production early in the second and lead the Maple Leafs, 3-2.
Brad Marchand  got the Bruins on the board when he scored a beautiful short-handed goal at 2:09. It was Marchand’s fifth shorthanded tally of the season, putting him in a three-way tie for second in the NHL . Fifty-nine seconds later, David Krejci  took a pass from Milan Lucic  in front of the net and put it past James Reimer for his 13th goal of the season. With the assist, Lucic became the 10th player of the post-lockout NHL  to have 30 goals, 30 assists and 100 penalty minutes in a single season. Lucic celebrated the mark later in the period by fighting Jay Rosehill.
After a Joffrey Lupul goal tied the game at two goals apiece, Andrew Ference  put a slapshot through the legs of Reimer for a soft five-hole strike.
The Bruins held a 19-7 advantage in shots on goal in the period and are outshooting the Leafs, 27-17, after two.
