TORONTO -- Tyler Bozak scored twice to help the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Air Canada Center on Saturday.
Bozak scored a shorthanded goal 3:44 into the third period when he poked the puck away from Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall and raced in against goalie Jimmy Howard on a breakaway. Bozak lifted the puck on the backhand over Howard's glove hand for his seventh goal of the season.
Bozak made it 4-1 with an empty-net goal with 1:47 left. Jonathan Bernier made 25 saves for Toronto, which won its second in a row since a 9-2 loss to the Nashville Predators on Tuesday.
The Maple Leafs saluted their fans afterward after not doing so following a 5-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
Leo Komarov gave the Maple Leafs a 1-0 lead Saturday with his second goal of the season. Komarov picked up a loose puck from Mike Santorelli and skated in against Howard. Komarov's shot went off defenseman Jonathan Ericsson past Howard with 8:21 left in the first period.
Tomas Tatar tied the game 1-1 with 9:32 left in the second period with his ninth goal of the season. Tatar one-timed a pass across the attacking zone from Xavier Ouellet past Bernier. Tatar's goal was his fifth goal and seventh point in the past five games. It was the first NHL point for Ouelette, a defenseman playing his sixth game.
Maple Leafs defenseman Roman Polak sustained a lower-body injury after he delivered a check on Tatar before he scored and did not return. Polak's left ankle was caught underneath Tatar as he went down to the ice; he was helped off by teammates.
Peter Holland made it 3-1 with his fifth goal of the season with 4:22 left in the third. Holland stole the puck from Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist and took it all the way in on Howard and snapped a wrist shot to the blocker side for the goal.
