SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Rostislav Olesz and Olli Jokinen scored in the first period to help the Florida Panthers beat Toronto 4-2 on Thursday night, snapping the Maple Leafs' three-game winning streak.

Ed Belfour, who played the previous three seasons with Toronto, stopped 23 shots. Joel Kwiatkowski scored on a breakaway for Florida and Chris Gratton added an empty-net goal with 36.9 seconds left.

Jean-Sebastien Aubin lost for the first time since joining the Maple Leafs in March, dropping to 10-1-3. He made 39 saves and fell to 1-1-1 this season.

The victory was Jacques Martin's 450th as an NHL head coach. He became the 13th coach to reach the milestone.

Toronto's Bryan McCabe scored on a slap shot at 7:19 of the third to end Belfour's shutout bid. It was McCabe's second goal. Mats Sundin scored his sixth goal at 14:09 of the third.
