MONTREAL, March 3 (UPI) -- Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski scored two third-period goals Saturday and the Maple Leafs broke a six-game skid with a 3-1 victory over Montreal.

Grabovski also assisted on Matt Fratin's second-period equalizer for the Leafs, who logged a win in Randy Carlyle's first game as coach after replacing the fired Ron Wilson.
