Thomas Vanek broke Price's shutout bid with a short-handed goal at 3:01 of the third period.

BRUINS 1, MAPLE LEAFS 0
TORONTO -- Chris Bourque scored his first goal with the Bruins and Boston held on to edge Toronto.
The Bruins threatened throughout the tightly played game, but James Reimer stopped 33 shots from all angles as Boston came at him in waves.
The Bruins (6-1-1) limited the Leafs to 21 shots and killed off two penalties in the last nine minutes to hang on to beat Toronto (4-4).
This was the first meeting between the teams this season. Boston won all six matchups last season, outscoring the Maple Leafs 36-10.
Boston is 24-5-5 in its last 34 games against Toronto and 13-2-3 in its past 18 visits to Toronto.

Anisimov, acquired in the blockbuster deal that sent captain Rick Nash to the New York Rangers, leads the offense-starved Blue Jackets with four goals.
COYOTES 2, STARS 0
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mike Smith stopped 17 shots, and Phoenix was at its tight-checking best in a win over Dallas.
