TORONTO, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Michal Handzus posted his first two-goal game of the season and Robert Esche made 34 saves Saturday as Philadelphia defeated Toronto, 4-0.
After defeating Toronto at home on Friday, Esche got all the support he needed when Todd Fedoruk ended an 86-game goalless drought midway through the first period.
Just two minutes later, the Flyers lost Eric Desjardins indefinitely. The defenseman suffered a broken right forearm when teammate Jeremy Roenick missed Toronto captain Mats Sundin with a check and inadvertently collided with him.
Handzus scored second-period goals around a tally by Roenick, who returned from a one-game suspension. Celebrating his 34th birthday, Roenick sat out Friday's 4-1 triumph for throwing a water bottle at an official in Wednesday's loss at Buffalo.
The Flyers pulled into a tie with Toronto atop the NHL Eastern Conference.
