TORONTO (CP) - The goaltending heroics of Tim Thomas enabled the Boston Bruins to continue their mastery over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

Glen Murray supplied a tie-breaking goal at 5:35 of the third period, but it was the play of Thomas that was the difference in a 4-1 Boston victory.

Toronto outshot Boston 46-24.

Marco Sturm and Brad Boyes added late-game insurance for the Bruins. It was the seventh win for the Bruins in their last nine games, and three of the wins have been over the Leafs.

Goals by Shean Donovan and Nik Antropov in the second period had sent the teams into the third tied 1-1.

Toronto defenceman Bryan McCabe left in the dying minutes with an injury to his left knee.

It was the fourth time in nine games that Boston was Toronto's opponent. The Leafs won 6-4 (Nov. 9) and Boston won 2-1 (Nov. 16) and 3-1 (Nov. 25) before the Northeast Division rivalry was renewed in front of a capacity Air Canada Centre crowd of 19,469.

Donovan opened the scoring at 5:59 of the second period when he took a wrist shot from the circle to the right of goaltender Andrew Raycroft that deposited the puck in the far top corner of the net. It was the first goal of the season for the former Calgary Flames forward.
