Brad Richardson, Mike Santorelli and Daniel Sedin each came up with two assists.

Roberto Luongo stopped 39-of-41 shots to earn the win.

Reilly Smith notched both goals for the Atlantic Division-leading Bruins, who had their four-game winning streak snapped and closed out a four-game Canadian road trip with a 3-1-0 mark.

Tuukka Rask started in goal but was lifted in the third period after yielding four goals on 23 shots.

Chad Johnson stopped 3-of-5 shots the rest of the way.
