PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Mikhail Grabovski's decisive goal in the third period against Philadelphia Monday let Toronto survive the Flyers' late challenge for a 4-2 win.

Grabovski's backhander 7:52 into the final period gave the Maple Leafs a 3-1 lead, which they needed after Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek scored on a power play 4 minutes later.

The Flyers applied tremendous pressure in the closing minutes in a bid to score the equalizer, but Ben Scrivens notched 10 third-period saves to secure Toronto's second win in three contests.

Jay McClement sealed the victory with an empty-netter. Nikolai Kulemin also supplied a goal and an assist for the Leafs.

Scrivens finished with 25 saves overall.

Scott Hartnell scored and Ilya Bryzgalov made 18 stops for Philadelphia.
