BOSTON (AP) — Joffrey Lupul scored two goals and the Toronto Maple Leafs got a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday that evened their first-round series at one game.

The Maple Leafs played aggressively from the start after a weak performance in a 4-1 loss in which the Bruins were much more physical.

But that changed early in Game 2 as Toronto delivered 22 hits in the first period to just 10 for Boston.

Nathan Horton gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead at 1:56 of the second period, but Lupul scored at 5:18 on a power play and at 11:56 with the teams at even strength.

Phil Kessel made it 3-1 on a breakaway 53 seconds into the third period. Johnny Boychuk cut the lead at 10:35 before James van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto at 16:53.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven playoff series is scheduled for Monday night in Toronto.
