PHILADELPHIA -- Phil Kessel, Nikolai Kulemin, Mikhail Grabovski and Jay McClement scored goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Ben Scrivens made 23 saves for the Leafs, who've won eight of 11.
Scott Hartnell and Jakub Voracek had Philadelphia's goals. The Flyers (9-11-1) failed in their fifth try to even their total of wins and regulation losses.
James van Riemsdyk didn't have a point in his first game in Philadelphia since he was traded to the Maple Leafs for Luke Schenn, but his team left with the win.
Just 24 seconds into a four-minute power play because of two penalties on van Riemsdyk, Voracek ripped a slap shot from inside the left circle between teammate Wayne Simmonds' legs and through the five-hole to get the Flyers within 3-2 with 8:18 left in the game.
However, the Leafs (12-8-0) killed off the second part of van Riemsdyk's penalty and held off Philadelphia's mad rush at the end. McClement scored into an empty net with 13 seconds remaining.
The Flyers are 12-5 in their last 17 games against Toronto, dating back to January 2009.
Shortly after Ilya Bryzgalov made an outstanding save on Kessel's one-timer to keep Toronto's lead at 2-1, the Leafs took a two-goal advantage on Grabovski's third goal in four games. A rebound from Clarke MacArthur's shot bounced right out to Grabovski, who flipped a backhander into a wide-open net.
Kessel gave the Leafs a 1-0 lead with 2:40 left in the first period. He fired a sharp-angle shot from near the right face-off circle past Bryzgalov, who has started 19 of 21 games.
The Leafs caught the Flyers in a shift change and went up 2-0 in the second on Kulemin's first goal in 13 games. Kulemin sped in from the blue line, beat two Flyers to the puck and scored on a backhander.
Hartnell, just back from missing a month with a foot injury, scored his first goal to get the Flyers within 2-1 less than three minutes later. Claude Giroux and Voracek set it up with perfect passes during a 3-on-2 break. Giroux skated down the center and fed Voracek, who made a cross-ice pass to the on-rushing Hartnell, who lifted the puck over Scrivens' shoulder.
Voracek has 14 points during a six-game scoring streak.
The Flyers' best chance in the first period came when Simmonds left the penalty box, took a long pass from Sean Couturier and broke in alone against Scrivens, who stoned his backhanded attempt.
Toronto tough guy Mike Brown squared off against Tye McGinn in a big-time battle in the first. They hammered each other with several punches before McGinn went down hard, leaving the ice with a bloody face and a torn jersey.
