TORONTO (AP) Colton Orr and Matt Frattin scored goals 28 seconds apart in the second period and the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

Dion Phaneuf, Clarke MacArthur and James van Riemsdyk, against his former team, also scored for Toronto, which got its second victory in six games at home this season.

But the win came at a cost. James Reimer stopped 12 shots before being replaced by Ben Scrivens early in the second period with what appeared to be a left leg injury.

Reimer stayed down before being helped to the locker room without putting any weight on his left leg. The Leafs described the injury as a ``lower-body injury.''

Scrivens finished with 32 saves.

Wayne Simmonds and Tye McGinn scored for Philadelphia. Ilya Bryzgalov made 10 saves on 14 shots before being replaced by Brian Boucher after MacArthur's goal at 6:15 of the second. Boucher finished with nine stops the rest of the way.
