    Leafs 6, CANUCKS 5, OT

    Leafs withstand late Canucks charge

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Mats Sundin scored with 1:47 left in overtime and the Toronto Maple Leafs survived a four-goal comeback by the Vancouver Canucks for a 6-5 win Monday night.

     Sundin carried the puck in over the blue-line, beat two Vancouver defenders and slid the puck off the inside post past goalie Garth Snow.

     Vancouver battled back from a 5-1 deficit in the third period.

     Ed Jovanovski scored on a power play at 5:03. Alexander

     Mogilny redirected a point shot at 13-16 to make it 5-3 and Harold Druken cut the deficit to one at 17:48 when he rifled a drop pass from the top of the slot past goalie Glenn Healy.

     The Canucks then pulled Snow and Jovanovski fed Markus Naslund with a breakaway pass. With the crowd on its feet, Naslund deked once then slipped a backhander past Healy to tie the game at 19:19.

     Naslund had a chance to win the game early in overtime, but Healy came up with a huge pad save.

     Darcy Tucker scored two short-handed goals for Toronto and Igor Korolev added one goal and two assists. Yanic Perreault and Sergei Berezin, playing in his first game since returning from a groin injury, also scored for the Leafs, who remained three points ahead of Ottawa for top spot in the Northeast Division. The Senators beat the Boston Bruins 5-1

     Toronto is undefeated in 15 games when Korolev scores.

     Andrew Cassels also scored for the Canucks and Mogilny had two assists.

     Vancouver moved within four points out of the eighth playoff spot in the Western Conference.

     The Canucks outshot the Leafs 38-25.

     The Leafs got a scare with just under 10 seconds left in the first period when captain Mats Sundin and Vancouver forward Matt Cooke caught knees in the neutral zone.

     Sundin went down and had to be helped off the ice by teammates, but returned to start the second period.

     Cooke, who looked like he was lining up Sundin for a mid-ice hit, was given a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct.
