MONTREAL (AP) -- Mikhail Grabovski scored twice in the third period and Toronto gave Randy Carlyle a victory in his first game behind the Maple Leafs' bench, beating the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Maple Leafs fired Ron Wilson on Friday night and hired Carlyle, the former Toronto defenseman who was fired by Anaheim in December.

Matt Frattin also scored and Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves to help Toronto end a six-game winless streak and win for only the second time in 12 games. Erik Cole scored for Montreal.
