NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the New York Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night.

Zuccarello and Stepan scored in the first two rounds, and Talbot stopped Nazem Kadri in the third to end it. Kadri scored a disputed goal with 1:24 left in regulation to force overtime.

Jonathan Bernier was exceptional for Toronto, making 42 saves through overtime and allowing only J.T. Miller's goal 7:04 into the third period. The Maple Leafs played their third straight shootout and lost for the second consecutive time. They are 2-5-2 in their last nine.
