Maple Leafs beat Devils 3-2

The win ended a losing streak for Toronto

It wasn't a masterpiece, but the Toronto Maple Leafs' losing streak is over.
James van Riemsdyk scored the shootout winner as the Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2 Sunday night at Air Canada Centre to end their skid at four games. It was their first victory since the Winter Classic.
During regulation, Tyler Bozak and van Riemsdyk scored for Toronto (22-20-5). Adam Henrique and Ryane Clowe had New Jersey's goals.
Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier stopped 36 of the 38 shots he faced to get his 14th win. Cory Schneider, who narrowly missed out on making the U.S. Olympic team as the third goalie, made 23 saves in a losing effort.
The Leafs have only two regulation victories in their past 26 games. They're 9-13-4 dating to Nov. 21.
A night after beating the Panthers with two seconds left in overtime, New Jersey fell to 0-6 in shootouts this season.

Five Leafs players (Bozak, winger Jerry D'Amigo, defencemen Tim Gleason and Mark Fraser and goaltender James Reimer) missed Sunday's morning skate with illness. All but Fraser were in the lineup.
