Maple Leafs 4, Flyers 0 @NHLdotcom

LONDON, Ontario (AP) -Lee Stempniak and rookie Nazem Kadri scored in the first period and the Toronto Maple Leafs cruised to a 4-0 preseason victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Mikhail Grabovski made it 3-0 in the final minute of the second period with an offspeed shot that beat Johan Backlund, who played the second half of the game in place of Brian Boucher. Christian Hanson made it 4-0 with 5:34 left in the third.

Kadri, a former member of the London Knights, completed a nifty behind-the-back pass from Niklas Hagman for his first professional goal on the same ice he played most of his junior career.

Both teams struggled on the power play, combining to go 0 for 9.
