Revived offense lifts Bruins over Maple Leafs

Thursday, May 02, 2013 - Updated: 3:31 PM

BOSTON (AP) -- Nathan Horton scored the go-ahead goal late in the first period and the Boston Bruins used a revived offense to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 in their playoff opener Wednesday night.

The Bruins scored more than three goals for the first time in 10 games. They closed the regular season on a 2-7 skid that dropped them to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.

That set up a first-round matchup with fifth-seeded Toronto, the first time the teams have met in the postseason since 1974. The Maple Leafs, who are in the playoffs for the first time since 2004, lost four of their last six regular-season games.

Wade Redden also scored in the first period for Boston, and David Krejci and Johnny Boychuk added goals in the second.

Penguins 5, Islanders 0

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pascal Dupuis scored twice, Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves, and the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins opened the playoffs with a 5-0 romp over the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.

Beau Bennett, Kris Letang and Tanner Glass also scored for the Penguins, who had no trouble against the upstart Islanders even with star Sidney Crosby sidelined by a broken jaw. Pittsburgh hardly needed its captain to continue its mastery of the Islanders, who made their first playoff appearance since 2007.
