From Times Wire Services

Michel Goulet scored three goals and Wilf Paiement added two as the Quebec Nordiques moved into a tie for the Adams Division lead with a 8-4 victory over the Boston Bruins Monday night at Boston.

Quebec, which began the day in third place with 77 points, leaped over second-place Buffalo to tie idle Montreal with 79 points. Boston, with 72 points, lost a chance to gain ground on the leaders.

The Nordiques built a 6-3 lead after two periods against ex-Kings' goalie Doug Keans, who had allowed just nine goals in winning his last five games.

Goulet scored twice with a man advantage, giving him 14 power-play goals and 49 total for the season. Peter Stastny had a goal and four assists.

Charlie Simmer scored his 33rd goal for the Bruins.

Toronto 4, St. Louis 3--Dan Daoust tied the score with 24 seconds left in regulation and John Anderson scored 1:45 into overtime to pull out a victory for the Maple Leafs over the Blues at Toronto.

St. Louis goaltender Rick Wamsley stopped shots by Rick Vaive both times, but Daoust and Anderson put in the rebounds as Toronto broke a six-game losing streak.

All the other goals came in the second period. Anderson gave Toronto a 1-0 lead before Greg Paslawski, Joey Mullen and Doug Gilmour scored in a six-minute span for St. Louis. Toronto made it 3-2 at 18:33 when Vaive was given credit for a goal after Rob Ramage's clearing attempt struck teammate Brian Sutter's leg and caromed into the Blues' net.

Minnesota 4, Calgary 4--Third period power play goals by Dirk Graham and Gordy Roberts rallied the North Stars to a tie with the Flames at Bloomington, Minn.

The North Stars entered the third period trailing, 4-2.
