TORONTO (AP) — Phil Kessel scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and the Toronto Maple Leafs handed the Vancouver Canucks their seventh straight loss, 3-1 Saturday night.

Mason Raymond and James van Riemsdyk also scored in the third for Toronto and Jonathan Bernier made 23 saves.

Toronto won for the 11th time in 14 games and seventh straight at home, while the Canucks lost the 16th time in 20 games. They've scored just 37 goals in that span.

Ryan Kesler scored for Vancouver and Roberto Luongo stopped 30 shots.

Vancouver is now 8-23-5 when scoring less than three goals in game (excluding the shootout), but a near perfect 19-1-4 when scoring three or more.
