TORONTO - Before you know it, finding a Maple Leafs weakness to beat to death is going to become much more of a challenge.

They checked a few more off the to-do list here Monday night with a big 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at the Air Canada Centre, just their second victory in six home dates.

The win may have come at a price, however, after James Reimer was injured early in the second period and had to be helped off the ice. The team said Reimer suffered a lower-body injury and how long he will be out of the lineup is unclear. Given his strong play of late, including a shutout of the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, it could be a big blow for the team if the injury turns out to be more serious than originally diagnosed.
