Flyers Hang On For 3-2 Win Over Toronto Maple Leafs

Brian Boucher made 27 saves and Claude Giroux netted the game winner as the Flyers beat the Leafs 3-2 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. It marks the Flyers second straight win as they seem to have woken up after their season worst four game losing streak. It also marks Boucher's first win since February 20th.

Andrej Mezaros and Darroll Powe scored the other goals for the Flyers, who took a 3-1 lead into the 3rd period. However, ex Flyer Joffrey Lupul would get the Leafs to within a goal after a fantastic play from Mike Brown at the 7:56 mark. But the Flyers would hang on for the 3-2 win.

Philadelphia retains its top spot in the Eastern Conference with 88 points. Next up, the Flyers return home on Saturday to face the #11 team in the East, the Atlanta Thrashers. Chris Pronger missed the game with an "upper body injury," which gave way for Nick Boynton to make his Flyers debut. The team didn't reveal exactly what was wrong with Pronger and listed him as "day to day"
