TORONTO -- The Boston Bruins finished with a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 4 on Thursday night at Air Canada Centre and now have a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven, first-round series.
The Bruins will have a chance to clinch the series on Saturday at TD Garden. Boston won the crucial game without Patrice Bergeron, who was scratched due to an upper-body injury. It wasn’t their best overall performance, but the Bruins still found a way to win. It helped that Tuukka Rask was sharp from start to finish.
Torey Krug, Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk provided the goals for the Bruins.
