Maple Leafs Slip Past Canes In OT

TORONTO (AP) -- Tim Connolly scored his second goal of the game at 44 seconds of overtime to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

The Leafs center went to the goal and had an empty net to shoot at when Joffrey Lupul's shot dribbled past Cam Ward.

Ward, who made 36 saves, broke his stick on a goal post in frustration after the winning goal.

James Reimer finished with 17 saves for the Maple Leafs. It was his first victory since returning to the lineup following six weeks of concussion-like symptoms.

Alex Ponikarovsky scored for the Hurricanes.
