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.
