Matt D'Agostini ended the tourney as the team's leading scorer with five goals.

TORONTO - With revenge on their minds and 2006 rookie tournament bragging rights up for grabs, the Canadiens came just short, dropping a 3-2 decision to the Maple Leafs Tuesday night at Ricoh Coliseum.

Kirk Muller's squad did manage to claw itself out of a 2-0 hole, thanks to second period goals by Frédéric St-Denis and Matt D'Agostini, but it ultimately was not to be for the Habs prospects. D'Agostini, who again formed a line with Kyle Chipchura and Guillaume Latendresse, ended the tourney as the team's leading scorer with five goals.

Montreal's fate was sealed by Leafs' top pick at this summer's draft Jiri Tlusty, who scored the game winner with under three minutes to go in regulation. With the victory, Toronto ended up with a perfect 4-0 record, including a pair of nail-biting wins over the Canadiens.
