TORONTO: Phil Kessel scored twice to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers in the opening game of important home-and-away series between the Eastern Conference rivals.

Toronto remained fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, moving four points ahead of Ottawa with their fifth win in six games.

Derek Stepan pulled New York into a 3-3 tie at 9:00 of the third period, but Kessel put Toronto back ahead 39 seconds later.

The Rangers remain level with the New York Islanders for seventh in the Eastern Conference with 42 points.

James van Riemsdyk and Ryan O’Byrne also scored for Toronto.

Rick Nash had the other two goals for New York.

Boston’s Brad Marchand scored two goals and Tuukka Rask stopped 40 shots as the Bruins scored a season-high in goals to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 6-2 while winning for the fourth time in five games.

Rich Peverley, Andrew Ference, Jordan Caron and Nathan Horton each added a goal, and defenseman Dennis Seidenberg established a career-high with three assists for Boston, which moved a point behind Montreal in the Northeast Division. Patrick Dwyer and Drayson Bowman scored for the Hurricanes, who lost for the 12th time in 13 games.

Radek Dvorak scored two goals at Anaheim California and Jonas Hiller made 27 saves after missing four games as the Ducks downed the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 to move closer to the second Pacific Division title in franchise history and first since their 2006-07 Stanley Cup championship season.

The Ducks lead Pittsburgh by one point for the NHL’s second-best overall record and trail Chicago by three with eight games remaining. Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim’s captain and leading scorer, missed his third straight game because of a leg injury.
