Bolland scores 2, Kessel adds goal; Maple Leafs stay perfect with 3-1 win over Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA - Dave Bolland scored twice and Phil Kessel added a goal to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.

The Maple Leafs are off to a 2-0 start and spoiled Philadelphia's season opener one night after ruining Montreal's. Jonathan Bernier stopped 31 shots for the Maple Leafs.

Toronto acquired Bolland and Bernier in the off-season to bolster their bid to get out of the first round and make a run in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Kessel, who turned 26 on Wednesday, scored his goal a day after he signed a $64 million, eight-year extension.

Brayden Schenn scored for the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
