Recap: Toronto vs. Chicago

Toronto, ON ( - James Reimer made 45 saves and Peter Holland scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period, leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Nazem Kadri and James van Riemsdyk also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have won three in a row.

Reimer had 26 saves in the third period, including one when he slid across the crease to keep Patrick Kane's shot out and preserve Toronto's lead in the final minutes.

Holland's winner came 2:21 into the third on a one-timer from the slot after Leo Komarov stole puck behind the Chicago net.

Brad Richards and Brent Seabrook scored power-play goals for the Blackhawks, who have gone 2-4-0 since starting the season on a five-game points streak (4-0-1).

Chicago had some good news. No. 1 goaltender Corey Crawford returned after missing six games with an upper-body injury and had 24 saves.

Late in the first period, Seabrook was in between Daniel Winnik and Kadri in the low slot when Winnik received Phil Kessel's pass from the point. Winnik slipped the puck past Seabrook and over to Kadri, who scored his fourth goal of the season for a 1-0 Toronto lead.

Richards scored his first goal as a Blackhawk on a slap shot from the top edge of the left circle with Andrew Shaw screening Reimer, tying the score at 1-1 with 3:32 left in the first period.
