RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Bryan Allen scored 1:16 into overtime to lift the Florida Panthers to a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night.

Allen took a quick slap shot from the boards that surprised Carolina goalie Cam Ward on the glove side.

Cory Stillman, Chris Higgins and Dennis Wideman also scored for Florida, which squandered a two-goal lead in the third period before steadying itself for the win.

Scott Clemmensen made 34 saves for the Panthers, who improved to 5-1-2 in their last eight games. Florida also celebrated a rare win at Carolina - the Panthers are 6-25-2 all-time at the RBC Center.

Zac Dalpe, Zach Boychuk and Jay Harrison had the Hurricanes' goals. Ward made 24 saves but couldn't help Carolina win its fourth straight.

TORONTO (AP) - Marc Savard scored the tiebreaking goal and Tuukka Rask stopped 36 shots to help Boston complete a five game trip at 3-0-2..

Nathan Horton also scored for the Bruins.

Mikhail Grabovski had the Maple Leafs' goal and James Reimer - making his second straight start for Toronto - had 31 saves.

Rask turned away several good chances by former Bruins star Phil Kessel, who has just one assist in nine games against Boston since being traded to Toronto prior to last season.
