Zuccarello's hat trick sends Rangers to 3-1 win over Maple Leafs; Lundqvist stops 22 shots @NHLdotcom

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mats Zuccarello's hat trick sent the New York Rangers to a 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

Henrik Lundqvist made 22 saves as the Rangers improved to 7-2-2. New York has won four of its last five, earning 10 points in its last six games.

The Rangers played for the first time since defeating Calgary, 4-1 on Oct. 25.

During the break, coach Alain Vigneault reconfigured his top two lines, reuniting Zuccarello with Derick Brassard and Rick Nash and putting Chris Kreider back with Derek Stepan.

Jonathan Bernier made 23 saves but Toronto fell to 1-6-2, losing five in a row.

Joffrey Lupul's deflection at 18:09 into the third spoiled Lundqvist's shutout bid.
