Maple Leafs Snap Rangers’ Winning Streak

Phil Kessel had two assists to add to his NHL-leading point total, and the Toronto Maples Leafs snapped the New York Rangers’ five-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory Monday.
  

The Maple Leafs scored twice in less than two minutes to take a 3-0 lead early in the second period, then gave both goals back in another quick burst later in the period. Jonas Gustavsson made 12 saves in the third to preserve the one-goal margin, repeatedly turning New York away on a power play in the final minute before David Steckel scored an empty-net goal with 5 seconds left.
  

The Rangers had won seven straight at home. Their only two regulation losses at Madison Square Garden this season are to Toronto, which also won 4-2 in New York’s home opener Oct. 27.
  

Cody Franson, Tim Connolly and Joffrey Lupul also had goals for the Leafs.
