Maple Leafs Pip Calgary In 2-1 Win

CALGARY, Alberta -- Felix Potvin made 25 saves and Todd Warriner scored with 58 seconds to play to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames in a battle of winless teams.


Alyn McCauley skated down the right wing and sent a pass to Warriner, who fought off a check from defenseman James Patrick before flipping a bad-angle backhander past goaltender Rick Tabracci from the right corner.


"This is a huge win," said Toronto captain Mats Sundin, scoreless so far in the young season. "We played 60 minutes. My production will get going. As a team this was the best game we've played."


The Flames (0-3-0) were unable to control the puck in the Toronto zone and could not pull Tabaracci for an extra attacker until the last 25 seconds or muster a good scoring opportunity.


Toronto (1-2-0) failed to score on 10 power-play chances and has just three goals in as many games. The Maple Leafs are 1-for-22 with the man-advantage.


"We've got to stay with it," said Calgary coach Brian Sutter. "The team's not playing well enough. I don't have the answers, we have to keep with it. We're not getting blown out of the water.


"We're not working hard enough to score goals. When you don't work hard, it gets twice as tough."


Theoren Fleury's first goal gave the Flames a 1-0 lead at 3:43 of the second period. The Maple Leafs tied the game on Wendel Clark's first goal, 19 seconds into the third.


Avalanche 3, Bruins 2. At Colorado, Josef Marha's first NHL goal snapped a tie with 5:44 left in the second period and Joe Sakic and Adam Deadmarsh each added a goal as the unbeaten Avalanche defeated the Boston Bruins 3-2.


Backup goaltender Craig Billington stopped 28 shots for the Avalanche (3-0-1), off to their best start since moving to Colorado before the 1995-96 season. Billington picked up where starter Patrick Roy left off as the Avalanche has allowed only five goals.


Ted Donato and Tim Taylor scored for Boston, which was playing its road opener.
