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

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
