TORONTO -- Pascal Dupuis scored twice in the third period as the Pittsburgh Penguins came back from a goal down to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre.

Craig Adams scored in the empty net for Pittsburgh while Tyler Bozak scored for the Leafs.

Dupuis got the winner at 17:50 of the third when Chris Kunitz fed him a pass from the left boards. Dupuis had time to snap home winner past Leafs goalie Ben Scrivens' glove.

Scrivens made 25 saves while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all but one of the 29 shots he faced.

The win extended Toronto's losing streak to four games while Pittsburgh won its seventh game in a row.

Bozak opened the scoring at 10:01 of the second period when he capped off a nice passing play also involving Phil Kessel and Cody Franson.

Kessel passed cross ice to the right side to Cody Franson, who waited for a hole to open up before going diagonally to Bozak.

Bozak had the time to drop to one knee and flick the puck over Fleury who scrambled across his crease in vain to try to stop the puck.

It took until 12:42 of the third period for Dupuis to tie the game.

Chris Kunitz won a battle in the corner in the Leafs zone and passed to Sidney Crosby who then spun a nice no-look backhand pass to Dupuis who was open on the left side of the Leafs net and he scored easily.

NOTES: Prior to the game the Leafs announced they had dealt minor league forward Nicolas Deschamps to the Washington Capitals for minor league defenseman Kevin Marshall. Marshall will be assigned to Leafs' AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies. Deschamps is likely to suit up for the Capitals' AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears. ... John-Michael Liles was in the Leafs lineup for the first time after being a healthy scratch for the last 12 games. ...
