TORONTO (AP) — Mats Zuccarello scored his second goal of the game with 5:56 left, snapping a tie and sending the New York Rangers to a 5-4 victory over the skidding Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

Rick Nash had three assists, including a nice backhand pass that set up Zuccarello's game-winner after the Rangers squandered a two-goal lead in the third period. Dominic Moore added a goal and an assist for New York, and Cam Talbot made 30 saves in his fourth straight start for injured goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

Dan Boyle and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Rangers, who had lost two in a row.

Morgan Rielly scored twice, and Daniel Winnik and Stephane Robidas each had a goal for the Maple Leafs. James Reimer stopped 34 shots in his third consecutive start.

It was the 12th loss in 13 games for the Maple Leafs, who have three points during that span.
