Carl Hagelin celebrates his goal near Leafs goalie James Reimer and defenseman Cody Franson during the Rangers’ shootout win.

NEW YORK — Mats Zuccarello scored the lone goal in the shootout to lift the Rangers to a 3-2 victory against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

The Rangers tied the Islanders and Senators for sixth in the East. Ottawa has a game in hand on both. But the Islanders have 17 wins in regulation or overtime (the first tiebreaker), one more than the Rangers and two more than the Senators.

The point earned by fifth-place Toronto, 0-5 in shootouts this season, left it five ahead of the trio.

Carl Hagelin and Ryan McDonagh each had a goal and an assist during the second for the Rangers.

Game highlights: Gregory Campbell scored two of the visiting Bruins' three goals over the first 8:12 in a 5-4 win over the Devils. The Devils have not won since Ilya Kovalchuk hurt his right shoulder against the Panthers on March 23. Their eight-game winless streak (0-4-4) is their longest since 1991-92.

Around the league: Wild goalie Josh Harding, out since Feb. 7 due to complications with multiple sclerosis, returned to practice. But there still is no timetable for his return. … Bruins center Brad Marchand left after being elbowed in the head by the Devils' Anton Volchenkov, who received a five-minute major. His status is unknown. … Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. … Canadiens backup goalie Peter Budaj signed a two-year, $2.8 million extension.
