Toronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul continued his torrid scoring pace Thursday night, netting the game-winner late in the third period with an incredible individual effort in a 6-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
In a game that featured a few lead changes, Joffrey Lupul decided he'd put the Toronto Maple Leafs ahead for good on Thursday night.

The Leafs winger continued his torrid scoring pace, netting the game-winner late in the third period with an incredible individual effort in a 6-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

It was the 29-year-old native of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.'s seventh goal in five games since returning from a fractured forearm. 

The Hurricanes scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-2 lead until Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf's blast tied it up in the third. 

Cue Lupul's heroics. 

He took the puck in his own end, came barrelling in off the wing, cut in front of Carolina goalie Justin Peters and outwaited the netminder to bury the goal that helped lift Toronto to the win.
