Steen's hat trick paces Leafs' 10-2 win over Bruins
BOSTON (AP) -- Alex Steen had a hat trick and two assists and the Toronto Maple Leafs cruised to a 10-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.
With the Leafs trailing 2-1 after the first period, Toronto scored five goals in the second period.
After Bates Battaglia and Steen had already scored to help Toronto regain the lead at 3-2, they each struck again along with Kris Newbury in a span of 42 seconds to give Toronto a 6-2 lead with 3:45 remaining in the period.
Steen began the night with 10 points for Toronto, which improved to 3-4-1 over the last eight and moved three points ahead of last-place Boston in the Northeast Division. It was the Maple Leafs second road victory since Nov. 24.
The Bruins lost their third straight and have been outscored 20-3 in the last three games and allowed 28 goals in the last five games.
