Recap


Maple Leafs 4, Flyers 2: Mikhail Grabovski recorded his third goal in four games and Ben Scrivens turned aside 23 shots as visiting Toronto defeated Philadelphia for the second time this season.

Phil Kessel and Nikolai Kulemin also scored and Jay McClement sealed the win with an empty-net goal. Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and Nazem Kadri added a pair of assists apiece for the Maple Leafs, who have won eight of their last 11 contests - including a 5-2 home triumph over the Flyers on Feb. 11.

Jakub Voracek, who was named the NHL's First Star of the Week on Monday, continued his stellar play with a goal and an assist. Scott Hartnell scored his first of the season and Ilya Bryzgalov finished with 18 saves for the Flyers.

Playing in his second game since returning from a broken foot, Hartnell trimmed the deficit with 2:04 remaining in the second period after chipping home Voracek's backhanded cross-slot pass. Grabovski answered to give Toronto a 3-1 edge at 7:52 of the third period after cleaning up a rebound.

With former Flyer James van Riemsdyk serving a four-minute double minor, Voracek trimmed the Maple Leafs' lead to 3-2 with 8:18 remaining in the third period after using Wayne Simmonds as a screen before firing a shot from the right circle past Scrivens.

GAME NOTEBOOK: After Kessel opened the scoring with a sharp-angle shot from the right faceoff circle, Kulemin doubled the advantage with 4:48 left in the second period. Kulemin jumped off the bench and reeled in Kadri's feed before backhanding the puck past Bryzgalov and off the far post. ... Voracek has five goals and nine assists during his six-game point streak. ... Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky attended the contest.
