Flyers Skate to Win Over Maple Leafs
Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn scored 1:14 apart in the second period to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.
Scott Hartnell and Max Talbot also had goals for Philadelphia, which snapped a three-game losing streak.
Tyler Bozak scored two goals and Joffrey Lupul had one for the resurgent Leafs, who were 6-2-1 in their previous nine games.
Coming off a 1-0 shootout loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday night, the Flyers needed this victory to strengthen their hold on fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Sergei Bobrovsky made 24 saves, including a pad stop on Bozak’s hard shot during a 4-on-2 rush with five minutes left.
