Tyler Seguin set up the game’s first goal with a powerful offensive rush and scored the go-ahead tally as the Bruins avoided their first three-game losing streak of the season with a 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs Thursday night at TD Garden. Anton Khudobin got the start in net and stopped 25-of-27 shots for the Bruins (15-3-3), who also managed to stay ahead of the surprising Maple Leafs (15-10-0) in the Northeast Division. Boston has 33 points while the Leafs have 30, with the Bruins enjoying four games in hand on Toronto.
Seguin added his second goal of the night on an empty-net tally with 14.8 seconds left to provide the final score.

He called a quick time out, got the guys...

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Clay Buchholz offered good results in the box score, and on the stopwatch.
Making his third start of spring training, Buchholz allowed just two hits over three innings, striking out four in what resulted in the Red Sox’ 12-5 win over the Twins at Hammond Stadium.
But that wasn’t necessarily what was most impressive.
Buchholz was able to take the work he was doing in between appearances regarding his pace between pitches and translate it into a noticeable tempo change this time around. It resulted in the image of a pitcher in command.
“We’ve tried to shorten down the number of time in between pitches. Not so much spending his delivery, but getting back up on the mound and delivering pitch,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “It was noticeably different toay. Another thing that he did in...
