New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyler Bozak scored the game-winner with
3:09 left in overtime, as the Toronto Maple Leafs spoiled Martin St. Louis'
New York Rangers debut with a 3-2 win on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.
Bozak, who opened the scoring with a successful penalty shot in the second,
accepted a blind backhand feed from Phil Kessel behind the net and elevated
the disc over Henrik Lundqvist from the doorstep to send the Leafs to their
first victory since the Olympic break.
Nazem Kadri netted Toronto's other goal, while Jonathan Bernier registered 35
saves for the Leafs, who leapfrogged the idle Tampa Bay Lightning for third
place in the Atlantic Division.
Though they were idle on the schedule, the Lightning played a major role in
Wednesday's trade deadline, sending St. Louis, their leading scorer, to New
York in exchange for Rangers captain Ryan Callahan, a first-round draft pick
in 2015 and a conditional second-round choice in 2014.
St. Louis finished with three shots in just over 20 minutes of ice time in his
Broadway debut, while Ryan McDonagh and Dominic Moore each registered a
short-handed goal for New York, which has lost three straight games.
Lundqvist allowed all three goals on 29 shots in defeat.
