WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Phil Kessel scored his first goal of the season late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs over the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Thursday.

Tyler Bozak scored short-handed and Matt Frattin added a goal for the Leafs, who won their second straight of a three-game road trip.

Kessel's goal ended a frustrating drought for the top-line winger who had 37 goals last season.

Zach Redmond and Andrew Ladd scored for the Jets, who have lost four of their past five games.
