Cats Snap Leafs\' Streak with 4-2 Win Thursday Night

Rostislav Olesz and Olli Jokinen scored in the first period to help the Florida Panthers beat Toronto 4-2 on Thursday night, snapping the Maple Leafs' three-game winning streak.

Ed Belfour, who played the previous three seasons with Toronto, stopped 23 shots. Joel Kwiatkowski scored on a breakaway for Florida and Chris Gratton added an empty-net goal with 36.9 seconds left.

Jean-Sebastien Aubin lost for the first time since joining the Maple Leafs in March, dropping to 10-1-3. He made 39 saves and fell to 1-1-1 this season.

The victory was Jacques Martin's 450th as an NHL head coach. He became the 13th coach to reach the milestone.

Florida lost the previous six meetings dating to March 9, 2004, while being outscored 21-10 overall.

Kwiatkowski scored unassisted on a breakaway down the left side at 3:19 of the third to give the Panthers a 3-0 lead. It was Kwiatkowski's third goal.

Goals by Olesz and Jokinen gave Florida a 2-0 lead after one period. The Panthers took 23 shots, a season high for a period.
