PHILADELPHIA (AP) -No thrilling comeback needed for Toronto and Pavel Kubina. The Czech defenceman finished Philadelphia in regulation and has the eighth seed within reach for the Maple Leafs.
Kubina scored his second-straight game-winning goal to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to their second win against Philadelphia in two nights as they beat the Flyers 3-2 on Wednesday.
``Hopefully it will be the start of a slide for them and the beginning of a roll for us,'' said defenceman Ian White. ``So with a little help we'll pass them.''
Kubina scored the winner in overtime on Tuesday when the Leafs rallied from a three-goal deficit to beat the Flyers 4-3. This time, Kubina got Philly early in the third period.
Playing without Mats Sundin for the last two periods, the Maple Leafs moved within five points of the Flyers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Notes: NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, in third place in the Sprint Cup standings, attended his first NHL game. He met Carter before the game and got his jersey. "I'm probably the most uneducated hockey guy in the building," Harvick said. "I wouldn't mind a fight or two along the way." ... Flyers F Joffrey Lupul returned to the lineup after missing a month with a sprained ankle. ... Toskala made his 23rd straight start. ... Flyers D Jaroslav Modry recorded his 200th career assist. ... Sundin had 16 points in his nine-game streak.
