Revived top line sparks Maple Leafs' first victory

Sunday, 10.12.2014 / 11:43 PM / News

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Before his team's game Sunday at Madison Square Garden, Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle intimated that his top line needed to do a couple of things to be more effective after he split them up the night before.

One problem for James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel was a lack of opportunities, caused in part by "being one and done," which is hockey speak for not creating second chances and extending shifts in the offensive zone. Another was the trio's work on the power play.

Reunited against the New York Rangers, Toronto's top trio combined for three goals and seven points and sparked the Maple Leafs to a 6-3 victory.
