Toronto Maple Leafs (13-8-3) at Florida Panthers (7-13-4), 7 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Toronto Maple Leafs begin a three-game road trip tonight when they visit the Florida Panthers at the BankAtlantic Center.
The Leafs will play the set over only four nights, and take the ice four time in the next six days overall.
On Saturday, Mats Sundin scored the game-winning goal in overtime, as the Maple Leafs edged the Montreal Canadiens, 4-3, at Air Canada Centre. Sundin also had an assist in the contest, which gave him his 1,100th career point.
Jeff O'Neill registered a goal and an assist and Ed Belfour made 30 saves for Toronto, which ended a two-game losing streak.
Belfour picked up his 446th victory, and is now just one back of Terry Sawchuk for second place on the all-time wins list.
The Maple Leafs, who are 4-4-2 on the road, will visit Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
Florida, meanwhile, ended a 12-game skid with a win over Pittsburgh on Friday, but fell back to Earth on Saturday with a 7-4 loss to host Atlanta. Marc Savard scored two goals and added two assists to lift the Thrashers.
Chris Gratton, Rostislav Olesz, Gregory Campbell, and Martin Gelinas all tallied a goal apiece for the Panthers.
Jamie McLennan allowed three goals on 17 shots before Roberto Luongo replaced him at the start of the second period. Luongo made 16 saves over the final two periods.
The Panthers, who are 5-4-1 at home, kicks off a four-game homestand tonight and will host Washington on Thursday.
Toronto posted a 2-1 win over Florida on Halloween at the Air Canada Centre, and is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings.
The Maple Leafs are, however, 0-1-1 in their last two trips to Sunrise.
