Surging Flyers win 4th straight, top Maple Leafs
Former Maple Leafs enforcer Jay Rosehill scored the winning goal, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves for the surging Philadelphia Flyers, who beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-3 on Thursday night for their fourth straight victory.
Simon Gagne, Jakub Voracek, Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn also scored for Philadelphia (17-17-3), which is trying to make a late run for a playoff spot. Sean Couturier added two assists.
Nikolai Kulemin, John-Michael Liles and James van Riemsdyk had goals for Toronto (20-13-4), which lost left wing Joffrey Lupul in the first period to an upper-body injury after he took a hard hit.
James Reimer made 26 saves for the Maple Leafs, but took his fifth regulation loss of the season one day after Toronto management decided against bringing in a veteran goalie at the NHL trade deadline.
Dion Phaneuf had two assists.
