Carolina beats Toronto 6-3 with help of emergency goaltender

TORONTO (AP) David Ayres was sitting in the stands with his wife at Scotiabank Arena when Carolina Hurricanes goalie James Reimer went down with an injury.

The on-call emergency netminder in Toronto, Ayers left his seat and got half dressed into his gear on the off chance something might happen to Carolina's second option, Petr Mrazek.

Midway through the second period, Ayres noticed his cell phone started to blow up. What he didn't realize was Mrazek had been hurt in a scary collision with Maple Leafs forward Kyle Clifford and was down on the ice.
