Mitch Marner scored at 3:54 of overtime as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the visiting Boston Bruins 4-3 Saturday night.

Marner, who also had an assist, scored his fourth goal of the season on a pass from Auston Matthews. Morgan Rielly had the other assist.

Rielly, Dmytro Timashov and Alex Kerfoot also scored for the Maple Leafs in the first meeting between the teams since the Bruins won Game 7 of their first-round playoff series last season.

Jake DeBrusk, Danton Heinen and David Pastrnak scored for the Bruins, who twice tied the game in the third period.

Rielly opened the scoring at 5:55 of the first period with his first goal of the season on a wrist shot from the point that deflected off Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo. Marner and Andreas Johnsson had the assists.

Toronto led 2-0 on Timashov's first NHL goal at 15:44 of the first. It came after Timashov helped create a turnover in Boston's defensive zone, took control of the puck and fired a wrist shot from the slot that was screened by a Bruins defender and went in over Halak's elbow.

DeBrusk notched his first of the season at 19:39 of the opening period, converting a pass from behind the goal by Charlie Coyle. Chris Wagner had the other assist.

The Bruins outshot the Maple Leafs 15-3 in the second period and had a 33-18 edge through two.
