Recap: NY Rangers vs. Toronto

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.
