The Bruins started out strong to start the first, with Reilly Smith tipping the puck past Jaroslav Halak's glove side. On their first power play of the night, Patrice Bergeron's drive from the right circle deflected off the post to put the B's up 2-0.
The second period changed the course of the game, as John Tavares was able to beat Tuukka Rask to put the Isles within one. The tying goal came from a tip from Michael Grabner off a drive from former-Bruin Johnny Boychuk. With 3.4 seconds left in the second, Kevan Miller was able to get the puck between the pipes, using Gregory Campbell as a screen to beat Halak from the offensive blue line.
With David Krejci and Milan Lucic providing screens, Torey Krug opened up the third with a wrister that seemed to bounce off Halak into his own goal. Reilly Smith was credited with his third assist of the night. Milan Lucic sealed the victory with two minutes left in regulation, putting the Bruins up 5-2 with an empty net goal - his third point of the night.
