BOSTON (AP) – Tyler Bozak scored twice, Phil Kessel had three assists and the Toronto Maple Leafs held off the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Tuesday night.

James van Riemsdyk’s goal a minute into the third put Toronto up 4-2, and the Maple Leafs held on despite getting outshot 41-26.

Jake Gardiner also scored for Toronto.

Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron each had a goal and an assist for Boston. Gregory Campbell pulled the Bruins to 4-3 with 10:25 left in the third period, but Bernier stopped a late flurry of shots after Boston pulled goalie Tuukka Rask for the extra skater.
