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.
