RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Rod Brind'Amour scored with 1:40 remaining in overtime Thursday, giving the Carolina Hurricanes a 3-2 victory over Toronto.

Toronto forced overtime when Mats Sundin scored with just 12 seconds left in the third period, but the Hurricanes came back to win their fourth game in five outings.

Scott Walker and Tim Gleason scored during regulation for Carolina and Cam Ward made 24 saves.

Vesa Toskala kept the Maple Leafs in the game by making 35 saves, but they dropped their third straight.

The game-winning goal came on the power play after Nik Antropov was called for hooking with 2:26 remaining in the extra period.

Brind'Amour charged toward the net, took a pass from Ray Whitney and fired a one-timer past Toskala.
