Kasperi Kapanen had another great chance for Toronto prior to Krejci’s opener, but Bruins defenceman Matt Grzelcyk blocked his effort at a yawning Boston cage with Rask out of position.

Sean Kuraly, with a goal and two assists, and David Krejci also scored for Boston (26-15-4), which eliminated the Leafs in seven games in the first round of last season’s playoffs. Tuukka Rask made 30 saves as the Bruins won the season series between the teams 3-1 and now sit just two points back of the Leafs for second in the Atlantic Division.
