TORONTO (Ticker) -- The struggling Toronto Maple Leafs will have a new look on Wednesday in Game Three of the Eastern Conference semifinal against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Air Canada Centre.

The Maple Leafs scored just two goals in the first two games of the series, prompting coach Pat Quinn to shuffle his lineup, returning Alexander Mogilny back to the top line with Mats Sundin and Gary Roberts.

Philadelphia goalie Robert Esche has stopped 48 of 50 shots in the series, leading the Flyers to a 2-1 victory over Toronto in Game Two at the Wachovia Center on Sunday.

Alexei Zhamnov scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and Donald Brashear had a power-play tally for Philadelphia, which is unbeaten in 16 postseason series in which it has won the first two games.

Tie Domi scored the lone goal for Toronto, which could not muster much offense despite the return of Sundin, who missed Game One due to a lower body injury.


Toronto - D Brian Leetch has points in four straight games.

Philadelphia - RW Tony Amonte has points in five of his last six games; Zhamnov has four goals and six assists during a seven-game points streak.


Toronto - C Robert Reichel has only one assists in nine playoff games; C Ran Francis has two assists in nine playoff games; RW Tom Fitzgerald is mired in a 36-game postseason scoring drought dating to the 1996 Stanley Cup Finals.

Philadelphia - LW John LeClair has gone 10 playoff games without a goal; C Michal Handzus has two assists in seven playoff games.

STREAKS: Philadelphia has won its last four playoff games, scoring 11 goals while allowing only three.

HISTORY: Philadelphia and Toronto are meeting in the playoffs for the sixth time, with the Flyers holding a 5-1 edge. The Maple Leafs' only series win came in the 1999 conference quarterfinals.


Philadelphia - Zhamnov, four goals; Zhamnov, Roenick, six assists; Zhamnov, 10 points.

Toronto - C Joe Nieuwendyk, five goals; Leetch, six assists assists; Leetch, six points.
