TORONTO (Ticker) -- Before heading to New England, the Toronto Maple Leafs will wrap up a three-game homestand when they host the Boston Bruins on Monday.

The Maple Leafs, who had a four-game winning streak snapped with Saturday's 5-2 loss to Philadelphia, will visit Boston on Thursday.

Toronto took an early 1-0 lead Saturday on defenseman Tomas Kaberle's first goal of the season and were knotted in a 2-2 tie after Eric Lindros's team-leading seventh tally in the third period before falling apart.

Ed Belfour let in three goals in a span of 11:47 as the Maple Leafs saw the end of their longest winning streak since November 22-December 6, 2003, when they won eight in a row.

Toronto outscored opponents, 21-9, during its four-game run and enters Monday's action with more goals (34) than any team in the Eastern Conference.

The Bruins rank third in the conference with 31 goals after Saturday's 6-3 triumph over Pittsburgh. Captain Joe Thornton broke out with two goals - his first two of the season - and two assists and Dave Scatchard notched a pair of scores for Boston, which recorded its first home win.

The Bruins were locked in a 1-1 tie in the second period before scoring four power-play goals in a span of 9:08 to take control.

The four scores with a man advantage in one period fell one shy of matching Boston's franchise record, established in 1975.

Belfour is 15-6-3 all-time against the Bruins but has given up 14 goals in his last three home games.
