ANAHEIM, Calif. – Marty Turco won for the first time in the NHL in more than 13 months with the help of a disallowed goal that would have tied it, and the Boston Bruins got second-period goals from Zdeno Chara and Benoit Pouliot less than 1 1/2 minutes apart to beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Sunday night.

Anaheim’s Matt Beleskey beat Turco to the stick side with a wrist shot just inside the left post at 7:22 of the third period, but teammate Andrew Cogliano had both feet in the crease and was pressed up against Turco when the puck went in. NHL officials in Toronto examined replays and ruled no goal — infuriating Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau, who had more than a few choice words for referee Rob Martel.

Brian Rolston then gave Boston a 3-1 lead, finishing off a two-on-one break with Chris Kelly by beating Jonas Hiller with a one-timer from the right circle with 6:54 to play.

Anaheim’s Lubomir Visnovsky completed the scoring with 2:29 left.

Turco, playing his third game with the Bruins, went the distance for the first time and made 25 saves for his first win since Feb. 1, 2011, when he stopped 29 shots in Chicago’s 7-4 victory at Columbus. It was his 25th career win against Anaheim, one behind Evgeni Nabokov for the most against the Ducks.

Kelly had two assists for the Northeast Division-leading Bruins, who hold down the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture by four points over the Florida Panthers.

Teemu Selanne scored a power-play goal for Anaheim and Hiller made 22 saves in his 69th start and appearance, breaking Guy Hebert’s 1998-99 single-season franchise record for goaltenders in both categories.

Bruins center Rich Peverley, returned after missing 19 games because of a knee injury.

BLUES 4, COYOTES 0: Brian Elliott made 20 saves for his eighth shutout and St. Louis’ franchise-record 14th of the season in the Blues’ win at Glendale, Ariz.

The Coyotes remained seventh in the Western Conference, one point ahead of Los Angeles, San Jose and Colorado.

CAPITALS 3, WILD 0: Alex Ovechkin continued his recent resurgence with his ninth goal in seven games, and Washington pulled back into the final Eastern Conference playoff spot with a win at home.
