TORONTO (AP) Jussi Jokinen scored two strange goals to help lift the Florida Panthers to a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Jokinen wasn't attempting to score on either goal against the Maple Leafs, with two passing attempts pinging off Toronto sticks and beating Jonathan Bernier, who made his third straight start in goal.

Jaromir Jagr and Teddy Purcell added empty-net goals for the Panthers, who won for the fourth time in five games. Florida is three wins from matching its franchise record of 43.

Morgan Rielly scored for the Leafs, who had a two-game win streak snapped.

Bernier turned aside 28 shots, while Florida's Roberto Luongo stopped 32 of 33 shots.
