Recap: Toronto vs. Pittsburgh

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Nazem Kadri potted the game winner just 1:26 into the final period to help the Toronto Maple Leafs down the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-1, on Saturday.

Dave Bolland added two goals, Phil Kessel had a goal and an assist and James Reimer turned away 37 shots for the Maple Leafs, who had dropped three of four coming into the game.

"I felt good. There wasn't too much rust. I felt comfortable and the guys played a great game," Reimer said.

Kris Letang tallied the lone goal for the Penguins, losers in three straight. Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves, but allowed three goals in the setback.

"We worked really hard for two periods. We wanted to get the go-ahead goal by trying offensively, trying to get a break. We got off the page," said Letang.

Letang's power-play marker 6:52 into the game gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead, but Toronto would score four unanswered to cruise to victory. Evgeni Malkin found Letang crashing to the net and he pounded it home.

Bolland fired a slap shot from just above the right circle on a breakaway to tie the game.

Later in the first, Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi left with a lower-body injury. Scuderi suffered the injury after a collision with Toronto forward David Clarkson. It appeared the Scuderi's left knee got sandwiched between the boards and Clarkson. He was helped off the ice and did not return to the contest.

Kadri stuffed home a backhander to put the Leafs ahead 2-1 1:26 into the final frame. On a 3-on-2 rush, Kessel sent a cross-ice pass to Kadri along the left side. Kadri took the puck back to the middle, got Fleury to bite on a fake, then deposited it into the back of the net.

Kessel's marker came with just under three minutes remaining after beating Fleury with a wrister.

Bolland scored from center-ice on an empty net with 42 seconds left to account for the final difference.
