TORONTO — Russ Courtnall scored a power-play goal at 2:21 of overtime Monday night to give the Toronto Maple Leafs a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
With Detroit's Doug Houda in the penalty box, Courtnall took a pass from Todd Gill and shot the puck through a scramble in front of the Detroit net. The goal completed Toronto's comeback from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits. Miroslav Frycer added two goals for the Leafs.
Frycer had tied the score, 4-4, at 8:11 of the third. He picked up the puck while circling out of the Detroit end, then quickly turned and fired a rising 20-foot shot that beat Glen Hanlon to his glove side.
John Chabot had staked the Red Wings to a 1-0 lead at 11:19 of the first period. His low shot from the blue line beat goalie Ken Wregget on his stick side.
