BOSTON, March 25 (UPI) -- Patrice Bergeron beat Toronto goalie James Reimer with a third-period goal and again in a shootout Monday, carrying the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win.

In the shootout, Bergeron gave Boston the advantage in the second round by faking Reimer to the ice and sliding the puck into an open net.

Tuukka Rask preserved the win with a third-round save on Nikolai Kulemin and the Bruins emerged with a home-and-home split against the Maple Leafs.

Milan Lucic also scored and Rask finished with 23 saves in the victory.

Kulemin and Joffrey Lupul found the net for Toronto, which dropped a fifth straight in Boston.

Reimer stopped 27-of-29 shots for the Leafs.
