Gary Bettman has done much to change the tenor of National Hockey League contests in the last decade by encouraging the enaction of a set of minor rules and regulations instituted to curb the prevalence of fighting and its lasting effects on those who made careers out of boxing on ice.

Gregory Campbell notched the deciding goal in the middle portion of the third period, and Boston used a three-goal final stanza to claim a 5-3 victory over San Jose at TD Garden. David Krejci and Torey Krug also lit the lamp and Milan Lucic contributed three assists for the Bruins, who have won two in a row for the first time in the young season. Tuukka Rask made 31 saves to even his record at 3-3-0. Logan Couture tallied twice and Joe Thornton once for the Sharks, who completed a five-game road trip at 2-2-1. Patrick Marleau added a pair of helpers, but Antti Niemi allowed four goals on 32 shots.
