TORONTO -- A short mid-game lapse was the difference between victory and defeat for the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night. Defenceman Dalton Prout and centre Artem Anisimov scored less than three minutes apart in the second period as the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets held off the Leafs for a 2-1 victory. "We had a mediocre second period and it cost us the game," said Leafs defenceman Cody Franson. "We got away from our game plan, we tried to get cute with the puck and turned it over too many times. And when you play a team that has that kind of transitional ability, thats not what you want to do." The Leafs carried the play for the majority of the first period and skated with desperation in the third, but ultimately couldnt break through the Blue Jackets defence. "For the first period we had lots of life and we were winning battles," said Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. "In the second period we just started to stall in the neutral zone. Were a team that needs to push the puck up the ice and establish a forecheck and we didnt do that for the first 13, 14 minutes of the second period." When the Leafs were able to apply some pressure, Sergei Bobrovsky was more than equal to the task. The Columbus goalie made 28 saves and stood especially tall when Toronto pushed for the tying goal in the final minutes of the game. "Their goalie made some really big saves in the third period and we missed some opportunities that we usually score on," said Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul. "We had some good chances, they just didnt go in." Its the Leafs third consecutive defeat since the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Toronto dropped overtime games on the road to the New York Islanders on Thursday and Montreal Saturday. "The three losses hurt because we had points available to us on the road," Carlyle said. "Thats the hard part, losing two overtime games on the road when we had one-goal leads in both games. That kind of kicks you a little bit, it doesnt feel very good." The Leafs remain in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, but five teams are within five or fewer points. "Obviously we wanted a different outcome in the past three games," Franson said. "But if you look at them we were sloppy on (Long) Island and still gave ourselves a chance to win. I thought we played a pretty decent game against Montreal, a couple of bounces and some penalty trouble cost us that one. "We didnt play a full 60 minutes tonight and thats on us. The other two games couldve gone either way." The loss against Columbus ended a seven-game home winning streak for Toronto, the Leafs longest at Air Canada Centre since a nine-game run in 2006-07. "We were rolling pretty good there and feeling quite confident in what we were doing (before the Olympic break)," Franson said. "When youre rolling like that, sometimes it can be difficult to find that smoothness in how you were performing before." The victory gives the Blue Jackets a sweep of the season series as Columbus beat Toronto 5-2 on Oct. 25 and thumped the Leafs 6-0 on Nov. 25. "They play a stingy game, they dont give you too much," Franson said. "They forecheck hard, they make you execute down low and if you dont youre going to get bit." Mason Raymond scored the lone goal for Toronto (32-23-8), making a game of it when he wired a slapshot past Bobrovsky at 15:45 of the third period. Thats as close as the Leafs would get, however, despite a late flurry when goalie James Reimer was pulled. "We didnt have enough of getting pucks through," Carlyle said. "It seemed like when we had glorious opportunities early in the game, they were blocking the shots. Later on, we stopped going to the front of the net and Bobrovsky had clear sightlines to make the saves." Reimer made 31 saves in a losing effort. It was his first start since Jan. 25. "I hadnt been in there for a while, so youre a little rusty and the games different than a practice, its faster, you have to battle harder through traffic," Reimer said. "There was a little rust there, but I felt pretty good." The teams were tied 0-0 after the first period and Columbus led 2-0 through 40 minutes. "They took over the game in the second period, they played really well, and we didnt find an answer soon enough," Lupul said. Reimer was sharp early as the Blue Jackets applied pressure, including a clear-cut breakaway by Columbus left-winger Nick Foligno less than for minutes into the game that was denied by the Leafs goalie. "We gave up two point-blank breakaways and Reimer stopped them both," Carlyle said. "You cant point to our goaltending as a deficiency, for sure. He did his part to give us a chance." Aided by a pair of power plays in the middle of the opening period, Toronto took over the momentum for the rest of the first period and had a handful of scoring chances but couldnt solve Bobrovsky. Prout opened the scoring when his slapshot from the left point beat a screened Reimer at 9:44 of the second. It was the defencemans first goal in 30 games this season and his second goal in 63 career NHL games. "Hes one of those guys that you root for and his teammates root for," said Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards. Anisimov gave the vistors a two-goal lead when he converted Nathan Hortons pass at the side of the crease at 12:38. Columbus went 0-for-1 on the power play while Toronto was 0-for-2.

Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions.BARCELONA, Spain -- Striker Ikechukwu Uche scored two goals and earned a penalty in Villarreals 3-0 win against 10-man Levante on Sunday, keeping the promoted side near the top of the Spanish league. Sergio Garcia did one better for Espanyol in its 4-1 victory at 10-man Rayo Vallecano, earning the dismissal of the opposition goalkeeper before scoring a hat trick to break a four-game winless streak for the Catalan club. Sevilla rolled over 10-man Betis 4-0 in the always heated Seville derby, while Elche edged Valencia 2-1 at home thanks to substitute Cristian Herreras late winner. Villarreals victory kept it in fourth place and in control of Spains last Champions League spot. "We are just going ahead game by game," Uche said. "We are going to try to win all we can and then well see." Uche broke free in the area in the 10th minute and was brought down by goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who was shown a direct red card. Villarreal team captain and midfielder Bruno Soriano stroked in the penalty kick after Javi Jimenez replaced Navas. Jimenez kept Levante in the match until Soriano delivered a through ball for Uche to score in the 74th. The Nigeria international scored again with a bicycle kick in the 89th. Garcia drew a foul from Rayo goalkeeper Ruben Martinez who was sent off with a red card in the 25th. Garcia converted the penalty kick and then added a second goal for Espanyol from the spot in the 51st when striker Jonathan Cordoba was fouled by Anaitz Arbilla. Saul Niguez gave Rayo some hope with a headed goal in the 81st. But Garcia managed to toe the ball home while falling backwards to seal the win two minutes later. Substitute Christian Stuani hit on the break in the 85th to cap Espanyols much-needed victory. "Its impossible to take the ball from Rayo," said Espanyol coach Javier Aguirre. "It always has more possession than its rivals, even Barcelona and Real Madrid. We tried to maintain our composure and take advantage of the chances their errors provided us, and early on thats what we got with Sergio Garcia and Cordoba. If we had pressed Rayo early they would have run over us." Sevilla forward Carlos Bacca scored one goal and set up another at Sancchez Pizjuan Stadium to keep Betis winless on the road this season and stuck in last place.dddddddddddd Bacca struck two minutes in from a touch pass by Jose Antonio Reyes to set the tone, and Sevillas defence dogged Betis up and down the pitch from start to finish. Betis lost defender Paulao when he was booked for a second time in the 42nd for fouling Reyes, and Stephane Mbia headed the resulting free kick served by Ivan Rakitic through the hands of goalie Sara Guillermo. After Betis again lost the ball in its half, Bacca chipped a pass to Victor "Vitolo" Machin to beat Sara from a tight angle in the 65th. Vicente Iborra, who had hit the post earlier, completed the demolition in the 88th with a header to turn in Rakitics corner kick. "We knew that as hosts we had to go at them," Bacca said after his first game against Sevillas crosstown rival. "The derbies are like finals, you dont play them, you win them. All week when I was out, at a restaurant eating with my family, people stopped to tell me how important this game was." Valencia outplayed Elche in the first half but could go no closer than Jonas shot off the crossbar from close range six minutes in. Fidel Chaves put Elche in front in the 57th with a well-directed header to flick Edu Abacars pass off the base of the far upright and into the net. Valencia pushed Elche into its area and Juan Bernat banged in his own rebound in the 73rd after goalkeeper Manuel Herrera parried his initial volley. Cristian Herrera went on in the 79th and five minutes later took Ferran Corominas pass lobbed into the area and beat keeper Diego Alves with a shot from the left elbow of the six-yard box to claim the three points. Elches win lifted it level on points with Valencia in the middle of the table. On Saturday, leader Barcelona didnt miss the injured Lionel Messi as it eased past Granada 4-0 to maintain its three-point advantage over Atletico Madrid, which demolished Getafe 7-0. Also, Real Madrid lost Cristiano Ronaldo to a hamstring injury after he scored in a 5-0 win at Almeria, while Carlos Vela scored four goals to give Real Sociedad a 4-3 win over Celta Vigo.
