Nov. 7, 2013 at 10:01 PM

BOSTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Brad Marchand touched off a three-goal third period Thursday that lifted Boston to a 4-1 win over Florida.

The Bruins turned up the offense with 15 third-period shots against Scott Clemmensen and pulled away to end a two-game skid. Florida has lost seven in a row and has managed just three victories in 16 games this season.

Boston held a 1-0 lead heading into the final period thanks to a David Krejci goal 7:17 into the second.

Marchand then slipped a wrist shot past Clemmensen 4:09 into the third, after which Torey Krug and Reilly Smith tallied for the Bruins.

Tuukka Rask stopped 23 shots to get the win and had his bid for a shutout come to an end when Jesse Winchester scored with 5:35 left in the game.

Clemmensen finished with 27 saves.
