TORONTO, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Patrick Dwyer deflected Tim Gleason's shot into the net late in the third period Tuesday, sending the Carolina Hurricanes to a 4-3 win over Toronto.

With the score tied 3-3, Gleason fired a shot toward the net from the left point and Dwyer, who was setting up screen in front of Leafs netminder Jonas Gustavsson, got a piece of the puck, redirecting it for the decisive goal with 5:11 remaining.

Eric Staal collected a pair of goals and Jeff Skinner scored one as Carolina snapped a three-game losing streak and downed Toronto for the eighth time in 10 meetings.

Cam Ward earned the victory by turning aside 34-of-37 shots.

Toronto got two scores from Phil Kessel, Mikhail Grabovski scored a goal and Gustavsson made 23 saves as the Leafs lost for the fourth time in five games.
