Pastrnak, Bruins down Leafs in Game 4

--

TORONTO - With the Maple Leafs buzzing and Scotiabank Arena rocking after Toronto equalized early in Wednesday's second period, the Bruins needed a push from their dormant stars.

David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron delivered, and now the Eastern Conference quarterfinal is heading back to Boston tied at two games apiece.

Pastrnak scored twice in quick succession, Marchand had a goal and two assists, and the Bruins survived a late surge to beat the Leafs 6-4.

Toronto had a chance to go up 3-1 in a series for the first time in 32 years, but instead will be kicking itself following a game where it fell behind 2-0 and 5-2 before a late rally fell short.

"We had real good energy," Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said. "I didn't think we had the kind of brain all the time that we wanted. Turned the puck over, two real big mistakes on the penalty kill.

"Just got in our own way a little bit."

The line of Pasternak, Marchand and Bergeron was held in check with six points -- including just two at 5 on 5 -- through nine periods to start the series, but had matched that total by the time Boston made it 4-2 five minutes into the second.

Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy moved Pastrnak away from the triumvirate much of the night only to reunite the three after the Leafs tied it.

The sniper finished off a 2-on-1 with Marchand on a play started by Bergeron to put Boston back in front at 3:16 of the second. Pastrnak then took a slick backhand feed from Marchand on a power play to snap home his second just 95 seconds later.

"It's not easy to win in this building," said Pastrnak, who mostly played on a line with David Krejci. "A hell of a win."

Charlie McAvoy, with a goal and an assist, Zdeno Chara and Joakim Nordstrom, into an empty net, also scored for Boston, which got 38 stops from Tuukka Rask.

Auston Matthews, with two, Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott replied for Toronto. Frederik Andersen made 25 saves, while Morgan Rielly added two assists.

The Bruins restored home-ice advantage in the series, with Game 5 set for Friday at TD Garden. Game 6 goes Sunday back at Scotiabank Arena.

Toronto held a significant edge in 5-on-5 play with nearly 62 per cent puck possession (70 shot attempts to 43), but was undone by mental errors and an inability to connect on the power play early.

"We did a lot of good things," said Leafs centre John Tavares, who along with Hyman and Mitch Marner have been tasked with going toe-to-toe against the Bergeron line. "We generated a lot of chances, got a lot of pucks to the net.

"We didn't have our best start tonight, but we gave ourselves a good chance. …
