Brewer scores winner in OT to lift Maple Leafs past Senators
TORONTO (AP) --- Eric Brewer scored 3:17 into overtime to lift the Toronto
Maple Leafs to a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
Tyler Bozak had a hat trick --- all in the third period --- and added an assist
on Brewer's winning goal as the Maple Leafs rallied from two down twice in the
final period to snap a seven-game skid. James Reimer stopped 22 shots to
improve to 11-3-1 in his career against Ottawa.
Mark Stone, Curtis Lazar and Kyle Turris scored for the Senators, who began the
day tied with Boston for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference,
but fell a point behind as the Bruins won earlier Saturday.
Craig Anderson made 27 saves for Ottawa.
With Toronto trailing 3-1 midway through the third period, Bozak had a
power-play goal with 8 1/2 minutes remaining and then tied with 1:24 to go.
