Not long after a Toronto power play ended, Kerfoot fished a puck out of a scramble in front of Murray following Muzzin’s initial shot for his third goal of the season.
Toronto opened the scoring at 4:32 of the second on Matthews’ 13th goal in his last 12 games. Moments after Joe Thornton had one of his own waved off for the second time in the game — a high stick on this occasion — Matthews took a pass from Justin Holl and rifled a one-timer past Murray.
Tkachuk tied it with 1:22 left in the second for his fifth of the season and 100th NHL point.
PANTHERS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jonathan Huberdeau scored his second goal of the game midway through overtime to lift Florida past Carolina.
Huberdeau also had an assist to help the Panthers improve their franchise-best road start to 5-0-1. Alex Wenneberg and Juho Lammikko — with his first in the NHL — added goals, and Chris Driedger made 32 saves.
Jordan Staal, Sebastian Aho and Vincent Trocheck scored for Carolina, and Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 33 shots.
