TORONTO (AP) Chris Bourque scored his first goal with the Bruins and Boston held on to edge the Toronto Maple Leafs 1-0 on Saturday night.
The Bruins threatened throughout the tightly played game, but James Reimer stopped 33 shots from all angles as Boston came at him in waves.
The Bruins (6-1-1) limited the Leafs to 21 shots and killed off two penalties in the last nine minutes to hang on to beat Toronto (4-4).
This was the first meeting between the teams this season. Boston won all six matchups last season, outscoring the Maple Leafs 36-10. The one-sided series included 7-0 and 8-0 margins.
Boston is 24-5-5 in its last 34 games against Toronto and 13-2-3 in its past 18 visits to Toronto.
