BOSTON -- Tyler Seguin had two goals and an assist and Patrice Bergeron had one of each on Thursday night to lead the Boston Bruins to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Anton Khudobin stopped 25 shots for Boston, which blew leads in each of its previous two games and lost both.

David Krejci also scored for Boston, and Brad Marchand had a pair of assists. With the win, the Bruins moved three points ahead of Toronto in the Northeast Division while remaining one point behind first-place Montreal.

Nazem Kadri and Mikhail Grabovski scored for the Leafs, and Ben Scrivens made 21 saves for Toronto.

The Bruins lost two in a row for the first time since January, blowing a 3-2 lead to the first-place Montreal Canadiens and a 3-0 advantage to the last-place Washington Capitals. Boston opened a 3-1 when Seguin and Krejci scored in the second period, but Grabovski made it a one-goal game with 5:08 left.

The Leafs, who had won three in a row, pulled their goalie in the final minutes, but they struggled to set up in the offensive zone and Seguin had an empty-netter with 15 seconds left.

Boston made it 1-0 with 53 seconds left in the first period when Marchand fought the puck out from the boards near the blue line and Seguin came by and picked it up. He went straight to the goal, and Bergeron knocked in the rebound.

Kadri and Clarke MacArthur converted on a 2-on-1 against Dennis Seidenberg to tie it early in the second period. Boston took the lead again when three guys committed to Marchand along the boards and the puck came out to the middle, where Seguin scored on a wrist shot and then had to jump over MacArthur as he dove to try to block the shot.

Krejci made it 3-1 late in the second. That's how it stayed until Grabovski he skated out from behind the net and took a shot through traffic to make it 3-2.

Notes: The Bruins waived Chris Bourque, the son of Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, on Thursday. He had one goal and three assists in 18 games this season. ... Hall of Famer Milt Schmidt dropped a ceremonial first puck in honour of his 95th birthday. ... Toronto's Colton Orr played in his 400th NHL game. ... Kadri has 11 points in Toronto's past seven games, and six goals in its past four games.
