Marner, Brown score to help Leafs beat Bruins 4-1

Rookies Mitch Marner and Connor Brown scored, helping the Toronto Maple Leafs roll over the Boston Bruins 4-1 for their first win of the season on Saturday night.

James van Riemsdyk and Milan Michalek also scored for the Maple Leafs, while Frederik Andersen made 24 saves for his first win with Toronto.

Anton Khudobin allowed four goals on 20 shots for Boston. David Pastrnak scored his third goal in two games this season.

One of six rookies in Toronto’s lineup, Brown opened the scoring with his second career goal just over 2 minutes into the first. The 22-year-old Toronto native pounced on Matt Hunwick’s point shot that caromed off a pile of bodies in front of Khudobin, shooting it high for the 1-0 lead.
