|Maple Leafs Blow Big Lead, but Beat Blues in SO
|TORONTO (AP) -- Tyler Bozak scored the shootout winner for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who bounced back from blowing a three-goal lead and beat the St. Louis Blues 6-5 on Thursday night.
Bozak beat Ty Conklin with a wrist shot in the shootout, but that didn't compare to the move by teammate Mikhail Grabovski, who made a 360 while cutting across the top of the crease and tucked the puck into the net. Kris Versteeg also scored in the tiebreaker for Toronto.
The Maple Leafs seemed to be in control when Phil Kessel's second goal of the game 1:15 into the third period made it 5-2.
