Patrice Bergeron scores in overtime to help Bruins edge Maple Leafs 2-1

Bergeron scored on a rebound off Brad Boyes' drive from the point, putting the puck past helpless goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin. Bergeron was the star on consecutive nights. He scored the lone shootout goal in the Bruins' 3-2 victory at Washington on Wednesday.

The Bruins hadn't won three straight since Jan. 23-26.

Bryan McCabe got Toronto even at 1-1 on the power play when his slap shot went between goalie Tim Thomas' legs with 6:42 remaining in regulation.

Thomas made 24 saves for the Bruins (7-7-2), who have earned all their victories this season in one-goal games.

Phil Kessel scored a power-play goal giving the Bruins a 1-0 lead when he knocked a rebound past Aubin at 14:09 of the first period.
