EDMONTON, Alberta, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A goal and two assists from Tomas Kaberle Thursday helped carry the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-2 win over Edmonton.

Matt Stajan contributed three assists and Vesa Toskala made 23 saves in Toronto's second victory in three games.

Edmonton, which had a two-game winning streak snapped, got goals from Sam Gagner and Ethan Moreau. All five Toronto goals came against Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers on 29 shots.

Kaberle's one-timer 2:47 into the second period tied the game and the Maple Leafs took the lead on a power-play goal from Nikolai Kulemin less than two minutes later.

After Morneau lifted the Oilers into a tie, Toronto went in front for good when Nik Antropov scored from in front with 61 seconds remaining in the second.
