Boston Bruins: 4 Takeaways from Their 1-0 Win over the Toronto Maple Leafs

Moving on gave way to hanging on as the theme of the night for the Boston Bruins, as they averted their first losing skid of 2012-13 with a 1-0 road win in Toronto Saturday night.

Goaltender Tuukka Rask bested Maple Leafs counterpart James Reimer, blocking each of the 21 shots registered on his tab. His skating mates offered no shortage of support on his property, as evidenced by the 22 shot blocks they combined for.

With that, the Bruins extended their winning streak over the Maple Leafs to seven games, dating back to the full six-game season series in 2011-12. They have cultivated points out of each of their last eight encounters dating back to March 31, 2011.

One can only speculate if the contested nature of the game was influenced, at least in part, by pregame and in-game personnel bumps on Boston’s front.

But based on how they handled their arrangement en route to two more points in the standings, here are the four ice chips worth picking up the most from Saturday’s action.
