Nick Bjugstad and Sean Bergenheim scored to give Florida a 2-0
lead in the first period, but the Panthers allowed the next five
goals. Blue-liner Dmitry Kulikov also tallied and Scott Clemmensen
stopped 26 shots in just his second start this month.
Franson's point shot through traffic cut Toronto's deficit to
2-1 with 3:11 remaining in the first period. The Maple Leafs took
the lead less than a minute into the middle session as Raymond
buried a wrist shot at the 27-second mark and van Riemsdyk tipped
Kessel's shot past Clemmensen 31 seconds later.
Kulemin made it 4-2 with a quick shot from the side boards that
fooled Clemmensen four minutes into the third period. Lupul fired
home a one-timer during a power play 2:22 later and Bozak converted
a feed from Kessel with 1:23 remaining to cap the scoring.
NOTEBOOK: Bergenheim has recorded a point in each of his last five
games. Kadri has collected 12 points in his last seven contests. The
Maple Leafs finished 2-for-3 on the power play.
