WASHINGTON — Tomas Kaberle scored his second goal of the game with 14:21 left in the third period as the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 3-3 tie with the Washington Capitals on Friday night.

Kaberle, unchecked, darted to the left post to convert a cross-ice feed from Darcy Tucker for his fifth goal of the year.

Mikael Renberg also tallied for the Maple Leafs, who are 4-1-1 in six games.

The Capitals, who have dropped four of five, played without wingers Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr. Their status for Saturday's game in Florida is unknown.

SENATORS 4, PANTHERS 2: Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and an assist and Patrick Lalime made 23 saves as Ottawa beat Florida.

Alfredsson's 22nd goal tied the game at 1 in the first period. Ottawa then bolted out to a 4-1 lead in the second period, scoring three goals in a 4:10 span.

The Senators have won five of their last eight games, collecting 12 points in the stretch.

THRASHERS 1, FLAMES 0: Milan Hnilicka had 37 saves and Hnat Domenichelli scored a second-period power-play goal to give Atlanta the victory over Calgary.
