NHL: Boston 4, Toronto 2

BOSTON, March 7 (UPI) -- Tyler Seguin gave Boston the lead for good with one goal and clinched the victory with another Thursday in the Bruins' 4-2 triumph over Toronto.

Boston has won each of its last eight meetings with the Maple Leafs, who were riding a three-game victory streak coming into the contest.

Seguin gave Boston a 2-1 lead midway through the second period and David Krejci's backhander with 1:57 left in the middle stanza boosted the Bruins' advantage.

Jay McClement brought the Maple Leafs within one with 5:08 to play in regulation, but Seguin decided the outcome by scoring into an empty net with 45 seconds to play. He ran his season goal total to seven.

Boston ended a two-game skid with Anton Khudobin making 25 saves. Khudobin, lightly used during a four-year NHL career, appeared in his fifth game of the season.

Ben Scrivens allowed three goals on 24 shots.
