Dennis Wideman scored three power-play goals and added an assist as the Washington Capitals beat the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-2, Friday night.

The Carolina Hurricanes sent defenseman Tomas Kaberle to the Montreal Canadiens for defenseman Jaroslav Spacek a few hours before their game at Winnipeg on Friday.
Carolina signed Kaberle to a three-year, $12.75 million contract in July hoping a reunion with Paul Maurice - who coached him in Toronto - would help improve the Hurricanes' defense and strengthen their power play.
Instead, Kaberle had no goals in 29 games and Maurice was fired last week.
