TORONTO (AP) — Richard Panik scored the go-ahead goal and Jonathan Bernier stopped 27 shots to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Detroit Red Wings for the second time in four days, 4-1 on Saturday night.

James van Riemsdyk, Morgan Rielly and Nazem Kadri also scored for Toronto, which won 2-1 in a shootout at Detroit on Wednesday night despite being outshot 42-19 in that game.

Panik put the Leafs up 2-1 with 2:10 remaining in the second period. Rielly extended the lead early in the third and Kadri added an empty-netter with 3:14 remaining.

Niklas Kronwall scored for Detroit and Petr Mrazek had 37 saves.

Kronwall’s power-play goal with 4:33 remaining in the first period gave the Red Wings the lead, and van Riemsdyk tied it 60 seconds later with his power-play score.
