PITTSBURGH, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Tomas Kaberle scored the winning goal in overtime Tuesday as the Toronto Maple Leafs posted a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Mats Sundin had a goal and two assists and Alexander Khavanov the other goal for the Maple Leafs, who have won their last three games. Mikael Tellqvist made 33 saves in net for Toronto, which has won six straight in Pittsburgh.

Mark Recchi and Michel Ouellet scored goals for the Penguins, who have dropped their last six games. Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves in the loss for Pittsburgh, which is 0-4 since Michel Therrien took as coach after Eddie Olczyk was fired on Dec. 15.

Sundin setup the game winner, firing a pass from the right boards to Kaberle in the slot. Kaberle then fired a wrist shot that went into the left corner of the net to win the game 2:26 into overtime.
