Nov. 12, 1997
TORONTO (AP) _ Igor Korolev scored twice as the Toronto Maple Leafs rallied to beat the Blackhawks 5-2 Tuesday night, snapping Chicago's six-game unbeaten streak.
Jason Smith, Fredrik Modin and Darby Hendrickson also scored for the Leafs, who won for only the second time in eight home games.
Bob Probert and Greg Johnson scored for the Blackhawks, 5-0-1 in their previous six games.
Modin tied the game at 2-2 with his first goal since March 15, at 4:56 of the second period. Then Korolev scored a decisive power-play goal from a scramble in front of Chris Terreri with 3:27 left in the period.
Korolev also got his fifth goal, at 10:13 of the third period. Hendrickson scored with 18 seconds left.
Felix Potvin stopped 29 of 31 shots for Toronto. He made his best save late in the third period, robbing Johnson who had been left alone in the slot.
Three minutes into the first period, Smith scored his first goal in 52 games since being obtained from New Jersey in the Doug Gilmour deal last February, for a 1-0 Toronto lead. But Chicago got power-play goals by Probert and Johnson just 1:22 apart late in the period.
