TORONTO - Joffrey Lupul scored twice in the third period, and Ben Scrivens made 40 saves in the Toronto Maple Leafs' 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.
Lupul scored on a power play 22 seconds into the third to put Toronto ahead 2-1. Florida tied it 23 seconds later when Shawn Matthias banked in the puck off Leafs defenseman Mike Kostka, and Lupul brought the Air Canada Centre crowd to its feet again at 3:12 with his second of the game.
Lupul has six goals in four games since returning from a broken forearm. He also scored Monday night in a 3-2 shootout loss at Boston, giving him three goals in two games since returning from a two-game suspension.
Dion Phaneuf also scored for Toronto (18-12-4). Tomas Fleischmann added a goal for Florida (9-19-6).
