The rivalry lives on. Boston defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 at the TD Garden in an entertaining, physical divisional rivalry game. Patrice Bergeron had two goals, Zdeno Chara tallied a power play goal, and Tuukka Rask made 33 saves en route to the 'W'.

With the win, Boston climbs within a point of Toronto in the Atlantic Division standings. The Bruins are starting to find their game, and starting to play with the consistently that was frustratingly absent in the first month of the season. Next up, the first place Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night.

The Good:

-Torey Krug's pass to Iginla who set up Chara for a great power play goal.

-The 2:05 shift by the Krejci line which drew a penalty and indirectly led to the game's first goal.

-While it wasn't quite a full 60 minute effort, it was pretty close. Great intensity throughout.

-Boston played their physical brand of hockey consistently tonight.

-The Bruins have taken five of a possible six points in the first three games of their five game home stand.

The Bad:

-McQuaid did this to his body. (stick-tap to Days of Y'Orr for the gif)

-Boston lost any momentum they had built in the first period by being completely outplayed by Toronto in the second.

The Interesting:

Notable Moments:

-Iginla had a productive night with a fight, an assist, 6 shots, and a shouldabeen goal.
