TORONTO -- Jonathan Bernier thought it was icing, and so did many of his Toronto Maple Leafs teammates. When it wasnt, the puck banked off the boards and Berniers skate and into the net to give the Carolina Hurricanes a 3-2 comeback victory Thursday night at Air Canada Centre. The NHLs new hybrid icing rule played a role in Ron Hainseys game-winning goal because Radek Dvorak won the race to the faceoff dots over Morgan Rielly, but ultimately Bernier accepted the blame. "It was just a bad mistake by my part," he said. "I looked up and see where my options were. The puck was probably spinning a lot, and I misjudged it." It was a jarring ending to the night for Toronto, which lost starting goaltender James Reimer to a head injury just 32 seconds in and had a two-goal lead midway through the second period. Coach Randy Carlyle said Reimer had a "headache" after winger Josh Leivo accidentally collided with Reimer as the goalie was trying to cover the puck outside the crease. Bernier stopped the first 28 shots he faced before Aurora, Ont., native Ryan Murphy scored his first career NHL goal 2:54 into the third period on a Hurricanes power play. Murphys shot went in off Dave Bollands stick. That was a bad bounce, but it was also the first tangible evidence that the Leafs were in trouble. "Its your job to get back out there and take control of the game," winger Joffrey Lupul said. "We shouldve bounced back a little better, I thought." But the Hurricanes kept coming. From the start of the second period on, they outshot the Leafs 28-14 and eventually tied it on Eric Staals goal 6:48 into the third. The way the puck went right from Carolina defenceman Justin Faulks stick, off Carl Gunnarssons skate and to Staal had the Leafs wondering if they were due for things to turn against them after a fortuitous 6-1-0 start. "Some tough bounces, but its almost karma for the way weve been playing a little bit loose," defenceman Cody Franson said. There was some element of that to Hainseys game-winner, which the Leafs thought was going to go around the boards instead of deflecting back toward the net. The play happened quickly, but linesman Don Henderson waved off icing because Dvorak was the first player to the imaginary line across the faceoff dots in Torontos zone. "It was a great job by Radek going down the ice and getting down there to take away the icing," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "Next thing I know it was in the net. I said to (assistant coach John MacLean), What just happened? He said: I think we just scored. I think its going to count." It did, with Hainsey calling it "one of those lucky things that happens over time." Carlyle estimated that Dvorak had Rielly beat by about a foot. The 36-year-old Dvorak wasnt leaving it to chance. "With hybrid icing you never know," Dvorak said. "I saw the puck and I had good speed, so I tried to get in on the forecheck. Luckily for us, the puck went in." Lupul was going for a line change as the puck was going down the ice. Asked if the play made him reconsider his thoughts on hybrid icing, he made it clear he didnt see the goal either live or on replay. "Whatever, we (the players) voted yes on hybrid icing," he said. "I wont say my opinion, but you can tell what I voted." The NHL experimented with hybrid icing during the pre-season and it was implemented for the regular season after a vote by the Players Association. Replays indicated that Dvorak was first, but Bernier didnt play the puck because he figured it would be icing. Had the old rule been in place, Bernier might not have made a different decision, but that will never be clear. "Thats the new game, so weve all got to adjust," Bernier said. "But its not excuses." Carlyle noted that a short-side goal is a bad one in the NHL, and this one qualified even though it ricocheted off Berniers skate from behind the net. The only lesson he could impart to his players was to "never give up on the puck." Bernier, who finished with 34 saves on 37 shots, figures that "fluke" goals like that will happen from time to time. His Leafs teammates know that games like this will happen, too. "Obviously throughout an 82-game schedule, youre going to win some games you shouldnt and lose some that you probably shouldve won," Lupul said. "It has a way of equalling out in the end." NOTES -- Leivo scored his first career NHL goal 6:47 into the second period on a shot that went over Hurricanes goaltender Cam Wards left shoulder. "Its a great feeling," Leivo said. "Its a little bittersweet right now but a good chip by Bolland, I got past that D-man two-on-one, (Jay) McClement played a good decoy there and I just saw the top corner and put it short side." ... Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk missed his second straight game with back spasms. ... Ward finished with 24 saves on 26 shots. Cheap Air Max Canada . "Back in 2011, when they announced that the game was coming here, we knew that it was going to be pretty important that we had a good year and hopefully could get into it, let alone win it, so I felt some pressure obviously within for sure," Taman said Monday, less than 24 hours after the Riders won the championship.

Brazilian striker Brandao opened the scoring with a header in the 55th minute before winger Franck Tabanou volleyed home from close range to double the lead in the 61st.MINNEAPOLIS -- Another group of former NHL players has joined the fight for compensation for head injuries they say they incurred while playing, while at the same time targeting the violence of the game that they believe brought about those injuries. Retired players Dave Christian, Reed Larson and William Bennett filed a class action lawsuit in federal court on Tuesday alleging that the league has promoted fighting and downplayed the risk of head injuries that come from it. "I think the glorified violence is really the Achilles heel for the NHL," said Charles "Bucky" Zimmerman, an attorney at Zimmerman Reed that filed the lawsuit on behalf of the players. "If anything comes of this, the focus on the glorified violence and perhaps the change to that will be a good thing." The lawsuit, which is similar to one brought by former football players against the NFL, joins others filed by hockey players in Washington and New York and seeks monetary damages and increased medical monitoring. The NHLPA declined to comment. A message was left with the NHL seeking comment. Zimmerman also worked on the football litigation, which resulted in the NFL agreeing to pay a $765 million settlement to thousands of former players. That settlement is still awaiting a judges approval, but the headlines it generated have been partially responsible for hockey players mounting their own case against the NHL. "Weve seen it in football. Its now here in hockey. Its of the same genesis," Zimmerman said. "Theres knowledge, we believe, that these type of concussive injuries were known and protections were not put in place appropriately enough and fast enough and rules changes were not implemented even today in fighting. "Players continue to be at risk aand suffer as a result of those risks that they take on behalf of the sport.dddddddddddd We think those are unreasonable and they should be changed and the players should be compensated." The lawsuit alleges "the NHL hid or minimized concussion risks from its players, thereby putting them at a substantially higher risk for developing memory loss, depression, cognitive difficulties, and even brain related diseases such as dementia, Alzheimers disease, and Parkinsons disease." One argument that tries to separate the NFL litigation from the NHL case is that by engaging in fighting, players willfully take on the health risks that could come from that. "You could make that argument only to a point," Zimmerman said. "And the point is that the fighting arena would not exist and would be outlawed as it is in every other level of the game had the NHL not condoned it and sold tickets based upon it and promoted the sport in that way. Its not the players that promote the sport in that way because the players dont implement the rules. Its the league that implements the rules. If they would outlaw fighting, there wouldnt be people who would fight." Zimmerman said he thinks more players will join the litigation much in the same way the group of plaintiffs in the NFL case exponentially grew as it progressed. "The light went on for them as the football players story was becoming more told," Zimmerman said. "I think the hockey players started to see that their story was going to be heard and told. Its not that we havent known about football players or hockey players getting hurt. Its now become more important that we talk about it and do something about it rather than just benignly let it continue into the future."
