Reeling Devils Blanked By Maple Leafs

James Reimer made 31 saves, and Phil Kessel snapped a scoreless tie late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, despite recording only 12 shots.

Kessel broke the deadlock at 13:28 of the third, and Jay McClement scored into an empty net with 36.6 seconds remaining to back the stellar goaltending of Reimer, who earned his third shutout of the season.

Toronto (24-14-5), aiming for its first postseason berth since 2004, is 9-1-4 in its past 14 games.

The Devils (15-17-10) lost for the 10th straight time (0-6-4) and were blanked for a second consecutive game, following their 2-0 home defeat to Ottawa on Friday. New Jersey, the defending Eastern Conference champion, are in 11th place — six points below the postseason cutoff with only six games left.
