TORONTO, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Toronto staged a late comeback Saturday with Dave Bolland scoring 2:09 into overtime to lift the Maple Leafs over Edmonton 6-5.

The Maple Leafs fell behind twice in the third period, but James van Riemsdyk and Joffrey Lupul each scored an equalizing goal.

Lupul's -- his second tally of the contest -- came with only 31 seconds left after Toronto had pulled its goaltender to add a sixth attacker.

Then in overtime, the Oilers turned the puck over in the neutral zone and the Leafs came in on a 3-on-1 break. Cody Franson's initial shot was turned aside by Devan Dubnyk, but Bolland put home the rebound for the game-winner.

Van Riemsdyk also scored twice, while Nazem Kadri added a goal and an assist for Toronto, which is off to a 5-1-0 start.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 26-of-31 shots for the Leafs.

Ryan Smyth netted two goals and Jordan Eberle chipped in a goal and an assist for Edmonton.

Dubnyk finished with 20 saves.
