NHL: Toronto 5, Nashville 4

TORONTO, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Kris Versteeg's two goals highlighted a second-period Toronto outburst Tuesday, in which the Maple Leafs scored four times en route to a 5-4 win over Nashville.

Versteeg's power-play goals helped the Leafs erase 4-1 deficit and come away with an improbable victory that broke an eight-game winless streak.

Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin also got power-play goals in the frantic middle frame.

Toronto netminder Jean-Sebastien Giguere was touched for four goals on 28 shots before being pulled in favor of Jonas Gustavsson, who stopped all six shots he faced over the final 13 minutes.

The Preds built a 3-0 lead in the first period on goals by J.P. Dumont, Jordin Tootoo and Martin Erat.

Pekka Rinne made 28 saves in Nashville's sixth loss in eight games.
