NHL: Toronto 3, Washington 2

Feb. 5, 2013 at 10:42 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- James van Riemsdyk scored twice within 2 1/2 minutes in the first period Tuesday, setting the tone for Toronto's 3-2 victory over Washington.

Van Riemsdyk opened the scoring with an unassisted goal off a Washington turnover 10 minutes into the game and added his sixth of the season shortly thereafter for the Leafs, who broke a two-game skid.

Korbinian Holzer added his first NHL goal and Phil Kessel collected a pair of assists in the victory.

Ben Scrivens turned aside 24-of-26 shots for Toronto.

Marcus Johansson and Mike Ribeiro each found the net for the reeling Capitals, who dropped to 2-7-1 to begin the season.

Michal Neuvirth stopped 18-of-21 shot as Washington fell for the fourth time in five contests.
