TORONTO -- James van Riemsdyk scored in the shootout and Jonathan Bernier made 36 saves to give the Toronto Maple Leafs a 3-2 win against the New Jersey Devils at Air Canada Centre on Sunday.
Van Riemsdyk was the only player to score in the three-round shootout and helped the Maple Leafs snap a four-game losing streak.
Toronto grabbed the lead when Tyler Bozak scored at 15:53 of the first period. Bozak capitalized on a rebound after a flurry of shots from Phil Kessel and van Riemsdyk. Bozak finished it off by sliding a Kessel rebound underneath Devils goalie Cory Schneider, who started a third consecutive game for the second time this season.
The goal was Bozak's seventh of the season and continued his hot streak since returning from an oblique injury on Dec. 29. In seven games since his return, he has eight points.
Adam Henrique tied it at 1:39 of the second period on the power play. Ryane Clowe fed a pass to Henrique who fired a wrist shot past Bernier for his 11th goal of the season. It was Henrique's fifth goal and eighth point in the past nine games.
Van Riemsdyk scored on the power play at 5:56 to put the Maple Leafs ahead 2-1. Van Riemsdyk collected a rebound from a Cody Franson shot in front of Schneider to score his 17th goal of the season.
Clowe tied the game 27 seconds after van Riemsdyk's goal with his first goal of the season. Clowe scored a breakaway goal on the backhand to beat Bernier. It was his first goal since April 19, when he was a member of the New York Rangers.
Toronto has won twice in regulation in its past 26 games.
The Maple Leafs thought they took a 3-2 lead on the power play at 10:03 of the second period when Bozak put a backhand rebound past Schneider, but officials waved off the goal and ruled van Riemsdyk interfered with the goalie. No penalty was called on the play.
Schneider made 23 saves for New Jersey.
