TORONTO (AP) _ Jozef Stumpel had a goal and two assists as the Boston Bruins completed an impressive six-game road trip with a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.
Glen Murray, Hal Gill and Ivan Huml also scored for the Bruins, who went 4-1-1 on their season-opening trip.
The Bruins, who play their first home game Thursday against Ottawa, are unbeaten since losing 5-1 to the Minnesota Wild in the season opener.
They won despite missing injured wingers Sergei Samsonov (wrist) and Martin Lapointe (broken left foot), and top defenseman Kyle McLaren, a restricted free agent who is sitting out after demanding a trade.
Boston goalie Steve Shields, acquired from Anaheim over the summer, made 33 saves for his second win.
Ed Belfour allowed four goals on 26 shots for the Maple Leafs, who have lost four of their last six games.
The Maple Leafs, down 4-1 in the second period, were booed off the ice after the second and third periods.
Stumpel fired a wrist shot past Belfour at 1:06 of the first, giving Boston a 1-0 lead.
Mats Sundin tied it at 1 on a 5-on-3 advantage at 7:45 of the first, but the Bruins scored three goals in the second period.
After Murray converted Marty McInnis' rebound at 13:36 of the second for his fourth goal of the season, Gill scored just 17 seconds later with a shot from the point.
Huml scored from the side of the net, giving Boston 4-1 lead at 19:47 of the second.
Notes: The Bruins have scored 19 goals in their last five games. ... The Bruins will pay tribute to Terry O'Reilly at their home opener. ... Belfour played in his second straight game after missing four with an infected thumb.
