TORONTO – Frederik Andersen made 36 saves, Tyler Bozak had a goal and an assist Thursday night and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-2.

William Nylander, Mitch Marner and Nazem Kadri also scored for the Leafs (30-22-14), who have won two straight after dropping five straight.

Philadelphia (31-27-8) had won 3 of 4. Wayne Simmonds and Shayne Gostisbehere scored for the Flyers, and Michal Neuvirth made 29 saves.

The Flyers opened the scoring with Simmonds’ 14th power-play goal this season, tying him with teammate Brayden Schenn for the NHL lead. Simmonds planted himself in front of Andersen and redirected a Gostisbehere point shot into the net at 6:09 of the first.

Simmonds trails only Alex Ovechkin in power-play goals since 2011, totaling 73 over that span. He has 28 goals overall this season.

LIGHTNING 4, WILD 1: Nikita Kucherov scored two goals, the first on a power play less than seven minutes into the game, and Tampa Bay won at home.

Kucherov assisted a goal by Andrej Sustr, giving him nine goals and eight assists in his last eight games. Victor Hedman also scored, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 32 saves. Vasilevskiy is 4-0-1 since the trade of Ben Bishop to Los Angeles, and the Lightning are 9-2-3 in their last 14 games.
