Leafs Defeat Bruins in Shootout

Mats Sundin and Alex Steen scored shootout goals and Toronto snapped a six-game road losing streak by beating Boston 3-2.

The Maple Leafs won for the third time in 10 games. Toronto allowed fewer than three goals for the first time in 11 games.

Phil Kessel and Marc Savard failed on their shootout attempts for Boston, and Toronto's Tomas Kaberle hit the post.

The Maple Leafs failed to capitalize near the end of regulation after Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference received a double minor for high sticking Darcy Tucker with 1:55 remaining.

The advantage was shortened when Pavel Kubina was whistled for tripping Jeremy Reich on a 2-on-1 breakaway 30 seconds later.

Toronto squandered its remaining power play time in overtime.

Zdeno Chara has nine points in six games for the Bruins, who have gotten eight goals in seven games from defensemen.
