Flyers 4, Maple Leafs 3, SO @NHL

TORONTO (AP) - Claude Giroux and Danny Briere scored in a shootout to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 exhibition victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

Nikolai Zherdev had two goals and Danny Briere also scored in regulation for the Flyers (2-0-1). Phil Kessel, Kris Versteeg and Dion Phaneuf scored for Toronto (2-1-1).

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 29 saves for Toronto, but ended up with the loss after the Maple Leafs were victimized by some strange bounces and a waived-off overtime goal that should have counted.

In overtime, Kessel batted the puck behind Michael Leighton, but the goal was disallowed because the referee thought it had gone in off his hand. There is no video review during the preseason.
