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 have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
