GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jonathan Bernier stopped 39 shots and the Toronto Maple Leafs had another big scoring night to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 Monday for their first five-game winning streak in seven years.

Phil Kessel had a goal and an assist to extend his points streak to six games for Toronto, which last won five straight from Jan. 27-Feb., 2007. Jake Gardiner and Nazem Kadri each had a goal and an assist, and Carl Gunnarsson scored his first goal in nearly a year.

The Maple Leafs have 20 goals during their winning streak.

The Coyotes sent a flurry of shots at Bernier after falling behind 3-0 and matched a team record by scoring a power-play goal in eight straight games when Mike Ribeiro scored early in the third period.

Antoine Vermette also scored a short-handed goal for Phoenix, which had numerous near-misses.
