The Blues took a short-lived lead early in the 2nd, before Larissa Borowiec drew Windsor even and Erinn Noseworthy put them up again. After the visitors knotted the game for the third time, Krystin Lawrence staked Windsor to a 4-3 lead by the end of the period.
Taylor Conte put Windsor up by two in the final frame, but a 4th Toronto goal followed by an equalizer, again on the power play, forced the game into overtime. Autumn Garnham then scored 28 second into the extra stanza to seal the win.
Marissa Kozovski made 31 saves in net for the Blue and Gold.
Windsor will head north this weekend for a pair of games against the Nipissing Lakers and Laurentian Voyageurs.
