DENVER - Jason Blake's goal early in the third period snapped a tie, and Dominic Moore scored twice for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who broke a four-game losing streak by beating the Colorado Avalanche 7-4 on Thursday night.
Nik Antropov, Mikhail Grabovski, Jeff Finger and Matt Stajan also scored for Toronto, and Vesa Toskala made 17 saves.
It was the most goals the Avalanche have allowed this season.
Milan Hejduk scored twice for the Avalanche, his second multi-goal game this season. Chris Stewart and John-Michael Liles added goals for Colorado, which has dropped six of seven.
Stajan and Moore scored late for the Maple Leafs, 2-6-2 in their last 10 games.
Blake took advantage of an Avalanche turnover to score his 16th goal.
Moments later, Hejduk scored what he thought was the tying goal, and hats hit the ice as fans celebrated what they thought was a third goal. However, Ryan Smyth was called for goaltender interference, nullifying the score. Replays showed that Smyth was checked from behind by Luke Schenn, causing the collision with Toskala.
The teams combined for five goals in the second period, including two that were reviewed.
Grabovski scored on a power play in the second period, his 13th goal this season. The Avalanche have given up a power-play goal in nine consecutive games.
Avalanche players Darcy Tucker and Andrew Raycroft faced the team that bought out their contracts last summer. The 33-year-old Tucker insisted there were no hard feelings.
Raycroft was roughed up by the Leafs, giving up seven goals on 30 shots.
