SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Peter Holland and the Toronto Maple Leafs took advantage after both Panthers goalies were injured Tuesday night and beat Florida 3-2 to snap a franchise-worst 16-game, road-losing streak.
Holland netted the winning goal 5:28 into the third period against Al Montoya, who had replaced injured starter Roberto Luongo after the first period. It was the Maple Leafs' first road win in 17 games (0-14-2) since they beat Boston on Dec. 31
The Panthers changed goalies twice, and even had goalie coach Robb Tallas get dressed on an emergency basis, but the 41-year-old Tallas never entered the game. He hasn't played in an NHL game since 2001.
