Leafs sweep home-and-home with Islanders

Clarke MacArthur scored two goals, including winner 2:06 into overtime, as the Toronto Maple Leafs skated past the 3, to sweep a home-and-home series.

Mikhail Grabovski gained the puck in the neutral zone and went in on a 2-on-1 with MacArthur. He glided to the left dot before feeding MacArthur, whose one- timer first appeared to be stopped by Islanders netminder Al Montoya.

However, a review showed Montoya made the glove save but the puck was already across the line, sealing the win for Toronto.

MacArthur also had an assist, while Grabovski had a goal and three helpers and Jake Gardiner finished with a goal and an assist for the Leafs, who have won three of their last four. Jonas Gustavsson made 29 saves in the victory.

John Tavares, Josh Bailey and P.A. Parenteau scored and Montoya was tagged for four goals on 21 shots in defeat. New York lost both ends of the home-and-home after winning three straight games.
