TORONTO (AP) - James van Riemsdyk scored three goals and Tyler Bozak had four assists, helping the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Nashville Predators 6-2 on Tuesday night.

Van Riemsdyk added an assist and Mitch Marner had a goal and two assists. Leo Komarov and William Nylander also scored to help Toronto improve to 6-2-0 at home.

James Neal and Viktor Arvidsson scored for the Predators, who had their three-game winning streak halted.

Frederik Andersen made 32 saves for Toronto, and Marek Mazanec stopped 26-of-32 shots for Nashville.

The Leafs jumped ahead 2-0 on goals by Marner and van Riemsdyk. Marner fought off a check behind the net by Ryan Ellis, curled out from the corner and put a wrist shot past a screened Mazanec 1:04 in.

Van Riemsdyk scored 13 minutes later by carrying the puck across the blue line and beating Mazanec glove side with a snap shot.
