"It's been talked about too many times," Hartnell said. "It's got to change fast. We can't get down 2-0 every game and expect to win, especially against a team like Toronto. They're playing really well."
Toronto made it 3-1 with 12:08 left in the game on Grabovski's sixth goal of the year. Seconds after the Maple Leafs' power play ended, Clark MacArthur's shot right in front of the net was saved but the rebound was kicked right to Grabovski, who backhanded it past Bryzgalov.
Voracek's goal came with 8:18 off an assist from Timonen, slicing the Flyers' deficit to 3-2. The 23-year-old winger, in his second year with Philly, now has five goals and nine assists in the past five games.
But McClement iced the victory with an empty-netter in the final seconds.
"It's a challenge here but we did enough to get a win," said van Riemsdyk. "We were all in, we all went in the right direction, we all pulled the rope. There were no passenger and that's what we needed. We got off to a good start and that was the key."
