(Sports Network) - The Toronto Maple Leafs seek their fourth straight win tonight when they visit the Florida Panthers at the BankAtlantic Center.

On Wednesday, Ian White scored the game-winning goal in the third period as Toronto rallied to beat Tampa Bay, 4-2, at St. Pete Times Forum.

Tomas Kaberle and Hal Gill also scored for the Maples Leafs, who received goals from three defensemen to push their winning streak to three games.

Jeff O'Neill added two assists and goaltender Andrew Raycroft finished with 23 saves.

Toronto trailed 2-1 entering the third period, before Gill knotted the score with 18:09 left in the frame. White then bagged the game-winner with 8:17 to go, and Alexei Ponikarovsky sealed things with an empty-netter.

The Leafs are tied with Montreal for second in the Northeast Division with 15 points -- six behind Buffalo.

Toronto will visit the Sabres on Saturday.

Florida, meanwhile, has lost three straight games, including Tuesday's 2-1 tilt against San Jose. Christian Ehrhoff scored the game-winning goal with 35.8 seconds to play for the Sharks.

Olli Jokinen scored the only goal for the Panthers, and Alexander Auld stopped 26 shots in the loss.
