Recap: Toronto vs. Boston

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Dougie Hamilton had one goal and two assists in the Boston Bruins' 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Carl Soderberg, David Krejci and Gregory Campbell also lit the lamp for the Bruins, who bounced back from Thursday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders. Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara hurt his left knee against the Islanders and will be sidelined for the next 4-to-6 weeks.

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston, which improved to 5-5-0 on the young season.

Richard Panik scored the lone goal for the Maple Leafs, who have lost three of four. Jonathan Bernier stopped 21-of-25 shots before being pulled in the third period.

"Frustration, anger ... that is the two things that were front-and-center from a coaching staff's perspective," Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said. "We didn't win too many battles early in the hockey game. Probably for the first 30 minutes we didn't move our feet and execute. It was like the Bruins had the puck and we struggled to get it back."

Soderberg scored on the power play at the 3:27 mark of the first period. He tapped in a loose puck at the side of the net.

Krejci made it 2-0 at 15:58 of the second stanza when he put home a rebound.

The visitors scored while shorthanded early in the third. Daniel Paille slid a pass to the slot for Campbell, who deflected the puck past Bernier at 2:32.

Hamilton scored at 4:09 and Bernier was replaced by James Reimer, who made eight saves in relief.

"This is the rink I grew up watching games in and it is the arena I dreamed of playing in the NHL, so it was an awesome feeling," Hamilton said. "I thought our whole D corps played really well; probably our best defensive game of the year. We talked about it and focused on it and we executed well."

Panik jammed home a rebound at the 14:27 mark to avoid a shutout.
