Unusual suspects lead Leafs over Hurricanes
RALEIGH, N.C.— When Patrick Marleau scored the Maple Leafs’ fifth goal of the night, it didn’t look like it would be the 102nd game-winning goal of his career.
But it was.
Marleau put the Leafs up by three goals, but only the heroic goaltending of Frederik Andersen held off a furious comeback by the Carolina Hurricanes as the Leafs won 5-4, taking three of a possible four points on their road trip.
“He was pretty impressive,” Marleau said of Andersen, who faced 90 shots over two nights on this trip.
“They came back, had a hard push and Freddie held us in.”
