Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) -
Joffrey Lupul scored the game-winning goal as the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime, 4-3, at Air Canada Centre.
Carl Gunnarsson worked the puck from the point down low to Dion Phaneuf. He took the puck and dished it past Nicklas Grossmann over to Lupul at the other side of the net, who beat a sliding Steve Mason for the game-winner.
Mason Raymond, Nazem Kadri, and Jake Gardiner also lit the lamp in the win. Troy Bodie supplied two helpers and Jonathan Bernier made 28 stops in Toronto's second straight overtime win.
Reviewing a deadline with substance

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The NHL trade deadline was supposed to become less active in the salary cap era, but a quick glance at the moves made over the last few days clearly shows that's not the case.
A total of 20 moves involving 38 players came down before Wednesday's deadline and that was after 10 trades went through on Tuesday.
More than the action, however, this year's deadline was marked by the big-name players who were dealt. Guys like Martin St. Louis, Ryan Callahan, Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller, Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo and Marian Gaborik gave this year's trade market both quality and quantity.
