Recap: Toronto vs. Philadelphia

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Ben Scrivens stopped 32-of-33 shots he faced and Colton Orr netted the game winner as the Toronto Maple Leafs overcame the loss of their starter during a three-goal second period to beat Philadelphia, 5-2, at Air Canada Centre.

Scrivens was called upon at the four-minute mark of the second period when starter James Reimer left with a lower-body injury after 12 stops. He allowed just a Tye McGinn marker with 32 seconds left in regulation.

Matt Frattin and Clarke MacArthur also tallied in the deciding frame for the Maple Leafs, who were coming off a 6-0 demolition of the Habs in Montreal and won their fourth straight overall.

"I think our whole team did a fantastic job out there tonight," said Frattin. "Especially Scrivvy (Scrivens) taking over back there after Jimmy (Reimer) left. He was solid for us tonight and it was another good win."

Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers, who had won three of four coming in. Ilya Bryzgalov was pulled after allowing four goals on 17 shots. Brian Boucher made nine saves for the remainder of the contest.

"We made some bad turnovers in this game that they were able to take advantage of," said Simmonds. "We gave three pucks away and they scored three goals, there's your game right there."

The Leafs assumed control with a pair of scores 28 seconds apart to begin the second, going up 2-1 at 2:05 on Orr's backhander, then Frattin tipped home a Cody Franson offering at 2:33 for a 3-1 edge.

Reimer left shortly thereafter, but the hosts kept pressing and went up 4-1 after a MacArthur strike with 6:15 played. Boucher came on for Bryzgalov, but the Flyers failed to turn the tide a short time later.

Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer was given a major for boarding and a game misconduct with 6:29 remaining in the second for drilling McGinn into the dasher face-first.

Scrivens made a glove stop on Schenn just over a minute into the advantage, which was the best Flyers chance of the punchless power play.

Former Flyer James van Riemsdyk pushed Toronto's advantage to 5-1 at the 1:10 mark of the third period, skating around trade counterpart Luke Schenn and beating Boucher.

The visitors produced the game's first goal with 38 seconds played, as Simmonds crashed the net along with Danny Briere and the former poked in a Schenn rebound.

Toronto knotted the game with 5:11 remaining when Dion Phaneuf's slapper from the point sailed through traffic and past Bryzgalov.

Philly managed to kill off a brief two-man disadvantage before the end of the period to keep it a tie game.
