BOSTON (AP) — Josh Manson and Rickard Rakell scored second-period goals to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.

Andrew Cogliano and Kevin Bieksa also scored for the Ducks, who won for the seventh time in nine games. Jonathan Bernier stopped 31 shots.

Zdeno Chara, Austin Czarnik and David Krejci had Boston’s goals. It was the Bruins’ fifth loss in six games (1-3-2).

Boston’s backup goaltender Anton Khudobin made 23 saves. The Bruins have won just one game that regular netminder Tuukka Rask hasn’t started.

After overcoming a 2-goal deficit in the first period, Anaheim moved ahead 3-2 just 55 seconds into the second when Manson scored off his own rebound.
