David Pastrnak and Derek Forbort each had a goal and an assist, and Jake DeBrusk also scored for Boston. Linus Ullmark finished with 23 saves for the Bruins, who held on after the Sharks scored back-to-back goals late in the third period.

Jasper Weatherby, Tomas Hertl and Timo Meier scored for the Sharks, who were off to a 4-0 start and were trying to go 5-0 for the first time since 2013. Adin Hill was pulled after allowing four goals on 14 shots in the first 21:28. James Reimer replaced Hill and stopped all 20 shots he faced, keeping the Sharks close before goals 1:49 apart in the third made it a tight finish.

Hertl pulled the Sharks to within 4-2 when he tipped in a goal with 6:41 left in the third. Meier made it a one-goal game on a tip with 4:52 remaining. The Bruins challenged whether Meier’s stick was too high when it made contact with a shot by Logan Couture, but the call stood after a video review.

Marchand needed just 28 seconds to put Boston up 1-0 on a wrist shot from the slot after taking a setup pass from Bergeron from behind the net. Pastrnak also had an assist as Boston’s top line got the Bruins rolling early and kept it up throughout the first period.

Marchand picked up an assist on a crossing pass to Forbort, whose wrist shot from just inside the blue line put Boston up 2-0 with 16:42 left in the period. Bergeron set up Pastrnak’s power-play goal with 3:48 left in the first, and DeBrusk added his second goal of the season early in the second period.

Weatherby’s goal 32 seconds after Pastrnak put Boston up 3-0 was San Jose’s only goal until Hertl tipped in a shot with 6:41 left in the third.

NOTES: It was just the second home game for the Bruins, who play their next two on the road before returning to Boston on Saturday to host the Florida Panthers. … The Bruins placed F Nick Foligno (upper body) on injured reserve and assigned D John Moore to Providence of the AHL. … Boston recalled forwards Oskar Steen and Jack Studnicka from Providence. Steen assisted on DeBrusk’s goal for his first NHL point. … The Sharks scratched centers Lane Pederson and William Eklund and added Alexander Barabanov and Jonah Gadjovich to the lineup. Gadjovich assisted on Weatherby’s goal for his first NHL point. … Boston’s Connor Clifton and Nick Bonino of San Jose had a brief fight late in the second period after Clifton leveled Andrew Cogliano with a hard hit between the benches. … Bruins outshot Sharks 11-5 in second period.


Sharks: At Nashville on Tuesday, wrapping up a five-game road trip.

Bruins: Visit the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night.
