TORONTO (AP) — Nazem Kadri scored twice and James van Riemsdyk got the go-ahead goal late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Jonathan Bernier made 40 saves in his first career start against the Lightning. Van Riemsdyk one-timed Phil Kessel’s feed past goalie Ben Bishop at 15:57 of the third for his 21st goal.

Less than a minute later, Lightning captain Martin St. Louis had an excellent chance for the equalizer. He was stopped by Bernier’s left pad on a one-time shot.

Kadri scored twice in less than 8 minutes to give the Maple Leafs a 2-0 lead before the midway point of the second period, but Matthew Carle and Mark Barberio responded for Tampa Bay to tie it after 40 minutes.
