Maple Leafs surge past Flyers 5-2
TORONTO 5, PHILADELPHIA 2

TORONTO (AP) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs had a rare well-played
game at home.



Now they will have to wait and see at what cost.



Colton Orr and Matt Frattin scored goals 28 seconds apart in the
second period and Ben Scrivens made 32 saves in relief of
injured starting goalie James Reimer on Monday and the Leafs
defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 for just their second
victory in six outings at home.



Reimer had to be helped off the ice early in the second period
with what appeared to be a left leg injury, pressing Scrivens
into action. Leafs coach Randy Carlyle says Reimer will be
evaluated on Tuesday, but added he doesn't expect him to miss
much action.



"Probably a good thing I'm not an overly emotional guy. I was
pretty even keel," Scrivens said. "My first thoughts were
concern for James. He's a friend and a teammate and you never
want to see anyone get hurt so I was hoping he was going to hop
right back up.



"Once it was obvious that wasn't going to happen you've just got
to get your mind going and just try to get yourself ready to
make that first save."



Scrivens made that save - and 19 more in the second period - as
Toronto handled a five-minute Flyers power play while up 4-1
after Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer was kicked out of the
game for boarding.



"It's always tougher coming in cold ... but that's the nature of
the position - being a backup, that's what you've got to be
ready for," Scrivens said. "You've just got to try to get out
that and give the team the best chance to win and I was
fortunate the guys helped me do that."



Carlyle, who started the season with Scrivens as his No. 1
goalie, praised his backup's play.



"(Scrivens) went in and stood tall for us and he was equal to
the task and we were able to find ways to put pucks in the back
of the net," Carlyle said. "I think it was three consecutive
shifts we held them in their zone and made some plays and played
with some fire."



Dion Phaneuf, Clarke MacArthur and James van Riemsdyk, against
his former team, had the other goals for Toronto.



Tied 1-1 after the first, the Leafs took control early in the
second thanks to a spark from their fourth line as the bruising
Orr scored his first of the season at 2:05.



"It feels good for us to contribute and gives us some confidence
out there when we can contribute in other ways than just
forechecking and fighting and stuff like that," Orr said. "We're
just playing a great team game and it was a lot of fun tonight
in our building."



Added Carlyle: "It makes everybody feel good and feel good for
those guys because they don't get an opportunity in a lot of
situations to provide a lot of offence over the year. We just
think they're deserving of more minutes and we even tried them
on the power play, and that's a reward."



Frattin then added his seventh of the season in just 10 games
since being called up from the AHL, deflecting a Cody Franson
shot home just 28 seconds later. Franson had assists on both
goals.



Wayne Simmonds and Tye McGinn scored for Philadelphia. Ilya
Bryzgalov made 10 saves on 14 shots before being replaced by
Brian Boucher after MacArthur's goal at 6:15 of the second.
Boucher finished with nine stops the rest of the way.



"We sort of shot ourselves in the foot and it sort of unraveled
in the next four minutes and we couldn't get it back on track,"
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "There were a lot of good
things that happened outside those six minutes. You can't remove
that. Those six minutes were tough. The start of the second
period was important."



Van Riemsdyk put the game out of reach at 5-1 with his
team-leading eighth of the season on a shot that squeaked past
Boucher just 71 seconds into the third. McGinn then scored a
goal for Philadelphia with 32 seconds left in regulation.



Coming off a 3-0-0 road trip, which included a 6-0 victory in
Montreal on Saturday night, the Leafs came out with a slow first
shift Monday.



Philadelphia worked the puck into the Toronto end and kept it
there until Simmonds banged the rebound of a Luke Schenn shot
home just 38 seconds into the game.



Philadelphia carried the play against the Leafs for much of the
rest of the first until Mikhail Grabovski, who was cleared
earlier in the day of any wrongdoing in an alleged biting
incident against Montreal on Saturday, hit both posts behind
Bryzgalov only to see the puck stay out.



That chance seemed to spark the Leafs and Phaneuf tied the game
at 14:49 with a one-timer off a pass from Leo Komarov that beat
a screened Bryzgalov.



"We didn't start that well. When you get scored on the first
shift of the hockey game ... but I think we were fortunate to
get out of the first period tied 1-1 and that's what our message
was to our players," Carlyle said. "The expectations for our
group are to play a lot higher level than what we did."



Notes: Schenn played 310 games in four seasons with the Leafs
before being traded to Philadelphia in June for van Riemsdyk.
The deal was viewed as a fresh start for both former top-five
draft picks and reunited Schenn with his brother Brayden.
Schenn, who wears No. 22 with Philadelphia, started for the
Flyers on defense and got a small applause from the crowd about
10 minutes before the opening faceoff. The Leafs honored Schenn
midway through the first period for his work supporting the
Canadian military. ... Nazem Kadri also had two assists for
Toronto. ... The Leafs are 6-1-0 on the road this season. ...
Both teams had a rough night on the power play. Toronto was 0
for 3, while Philadelphia was 0 for 5. ... Philadelphia was
coming off a 3-0-1 homestand. Monday's game was the first of a
six-game road trip that will also see the Flyers travel to
Winnipeg, New Jersey, Montreal, Long Island and Pittsburgh.
Philadelphia is 1-6-0 away from home.
