NEW YORK (AP) - Tyler Bozak scored on a penalty shot and then got the winning goal 1:51 into overtime to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night, spoiling the New York debut of Martin St. Louis. 

St. Louis played more than 20 minutes, on a line with former Lightning teammate Brad Richards.  He had 3 shots on goal, but no points.   

Bozak got to a loose puck in front that bounced past Rangers defensemen Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh and slammed a shot past Henrik Lundqvist to snap the Maple Leafs' three-game losing streak (0-1-2) and stretch New York's skid to three (0-2-1).   

Toronto built a 2-0 lead on Bozak's second-period goal and Nazem Kadri's tally in the third. The Rangers tied it on short-handed goals by McDonagh and Dominic Moore 1:19 apart.   

Lundqvist bounced back from two straight losses in which he gave up 10 goals, finishing with 26 saves. Toronto's Jonathan Bernier had dropped two straight after regulation while allowing nine goals. He stopped 35 shots.
