TORONTO (AP) — Peter Holland scored at 2:21 of the third period and James Reimer made 45 saves and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2, on Saturday night.
Reimer made 26 saves in the third period to preserve the win. Nazem Kadri and James van Riemsdyk also scored for the Leafs.
Brad Richards and Brent Seabrook scored power-play goals for Chicago. Corey Crawford, who was making his first start since Oct. 18 because of an upper-body injury, made 24 saves.
On the game’s first shift, the Leafs had a chance to score on Crawford. Tyler Bozak had van Riemsdyk on a 2-on-1 break but waited too long, and Seabrook slid in the way of the pass to break it up.
Less than a minute later, Trevor van Riemsdyk, playing older brother James in a regulation game for the first time, got a shot on net after a drop pass from Patrick Kane. Reimer made the save to keep it scoreless.
