TORONTO, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Ben Scrivens replaced an injured James Reimer and responded by stopping 32-of-33 shots Monday in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 5-2 win over Philadelphia.

James Reimer had turned aside 11-of-12 Flyers shots before leaving at the 4-minute mark of the second period with a lower-body injury.

But Scrivens proved an able replacement, allowing just a Tye McGinn tally with 32 seconds left in the game en route to securing the Maple Leafs' fourth straight victory.

Colton Orr netted the eventual game-winner while Matt Frattin and Clarke MacArthur also tallied in the decisive second period as Toronto reeled off three unanswered goals.

Ilya Bryzgalov started for Philadelphia but was chased from the net after yielding four goals on 17 shots. Brian Boucher relieved and stopped 9-of-10 shots the rest of the way.

Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers, who lost for the second time in five games.
