EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Left-winger Sergei Berezin had two of his three goals in the first period to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-1 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

Center Steve Sullivan and left-winger Steve Thomas also scored for the Leafs, who opened a 5-0 lead when Berezin scored Toronto's third power-play goal at 1:40 of the third period.

Former Leafs defenseman Jason Smith scored at 2:17 of the third period for the only goal for the Oilers, who remain in ninth place in the Western Conference, one point behind the Calgary Flames.

Berezin has 32 goals and 51 points in 69 games after notching his second hat trick of the season. He also scored three goals Feb. 10 in a 6-5 win against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Berezin scored from the face-off circle on opposite sides at 5:27 and 17:48 of the first. The first goal came on a slap shot on a power play and the second came after left-winger Rem Murray failed to check him.

Berezin's third goal was on another slap shot from the faceoff circle.

Sullivan made it 2-0 when left-winger Derek King made an excellent pass following a giveaway by Smith in the Oilers end.

Thomas scored his 27th goal on a slap shot from the face-off circle 24 seconds into the third.

King had three assists for Toronto.

Left-winger Ryan Smyth set up Smith's goal with a nifty pass in front as referee Paul Devorski signaled a delayed penalty against the Leafs.
