BOSTON (AP) Auston Matthews and Zach Hyman scored in the second period, Frederik Andersen made 32 saves and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 4-1 on Saturday night.

James van Riemsdyk scored in the third for Toronto, which was 0-2-1 in its last three games. Connor Brown added an empty-netter and Andersen improved to 6-0-0 in his career against Boston.

Brad Marchand had the Bruins' goal, and Tuukka Rask stopped 16 shots.

Former Bruins defenseman Matt Hunwick had two assists.

Boston lost to Colorado, then-the NHL's worst team, on Thursday night at TD Garden and followed that by losing to the team that entered as the Eastern Conference's last-place club.

Boston had taken points in 12 of the last 13 meetings against Toronto (9-1-3).
