Rangers beat Leafs

NEW YORK—The New York Rangers escaped with two points they believed they deserved even though they gave up a goal they felt the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t earn.
Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 last night.

The game was forced into overtime because of Nazem Kadri’s goal with 1:24 left in regulation—one the Rangers thought shouldn’t have counted.
After a wraparound attempt, David Clarkson took two whacks at the puck at the right post, and Talbot appeared to cover it, but Kadri came in and poked it in under Talbot’s pad.
The NHL reviewed it in Toronto and said the goal should stand.
In other NHL action, it was: Stars 5, Kings 2; Sharks 5, Avalanche 4; Sabres 2, Coyotes 1, Ot; Blackhawks 5, Devils 2; Flames 4, Blues 3, So; Ducks 3, Capitals 2; Blue Jackets 4, Hurricanes 3; Senators 5, Penguins 0; Oilers 6, Jets 2; Islanders 3, Red Wings 0; Lightning 6, Panthers 1; Flyers 4, Wild 1; And Bruins 6, Predators 2.
