It was just like old times for the Carolina Hurricanes, and certainly for Eric Staal.

Staal had the RBC Center roaring in the third period Thursday, scoring a goal and then unleashing a mighty uppercut. But his second goal, in overtime, topped the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 and had the building really rumbling.

It hasn't been the best of seasons for the Canes or for Staal, their captain. But their last home game in 2011 will be one to remember.
