Savard beat Joe Nieuwendyk before putting a shot by goaltender Ed Belfour. Just 22 seconds later, Jeff Cowan's shot got stuck in Belfour's equipment before it trickled through.

Belfour nearly cost his team a chance at a point when he was called for roughing with 61 seconds remaining in regulation.

In overtime, Toronto had a 4-on-3 power play as defenseman Andy Sutton elbowed Tucker behind the Atlanta net.

Atlanta took advantage of a 3-on-3 as Savard lifted a 38-foot wrister past Belfour for his fifth career overtime tally.
