Bruins dump Maple Leafs to extend division lead

By Frank Pingue

TORONTO (Reuters) - The Boston Bruins rallied from a goal down to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday and extend their lead in the NHL's Northeast division.

The Bruins have earned points in six consecutive games and have a three-point lead in the Northeast.

Grabovski broke in alone and made a nifty deke before backhanding the puck by Boston goalie Tuukka Rask.

Boston's Nathan Horton snapped his goal-scoring drought when he notched his 12th of the season, and first since December 11, with a wrist shot that zipped past Toronto goalie James Reimer to level the score at 1-1 eight minutes into the second period.

Former Bruin Phil Kessel, who scored the deciding goal in a shootout win over Boston last month, failed to register a point.
