TORONTO (CP) - Wayne Savage made 45 saves to lead the Toronto-St. Michael's Majors to a 5-4 win over Kingston on Thursday night in the Ontario Hockey League.

Savage was brilliant in the first two periods, stopping 35 shots including a penalty shot. Toronto trailed 3-2 after 40 minutes. "It's really good to beat offensively skilled players," Savage said. "It's nice to get a big win over them."

The Majors scored three unanswered goals in the third period. Matt Caria had the winner on a shorthanded breakaway at 16:24 of the third, stealing the puck at his own blue-line and beating goalie Daryl Borden with a deke to the left, lifting the puck over Borden's pad.

Caria and teammate Jason Cassidy scored twice, with a single to Matt Piva. Scoring for Kingston were Cory Emmerton, Nathan Moon, Peder Skinner and Bobby Nyholm.

Borden finished with 27 saves as the gifted but struggling Frontenacs dropped to 4-10-0-1.
