It was the kind of play you would not have seen back in mid-October with the Flyers clinging to a one-goal lead in the third period while being outplayed. Jakub Voracek chasing down a puck, outracing an Islander in their zone, going into the back boards, tying it up, then fighting to make a play and getting a pass into the slot. The pass hits the post, ricochets into the slot where Brayden Schenn buries it for a 4-2 pressure-reliever of a lead. “We were trying to get a forecheck all game and it didn’t work out for us,” Voracek said. “We said at the second intermission, just stick with it, be patient, it’s gonna come. More chances. That was a big goal for us. “I was lucky. I tried to pass to Luke Schenn backdoor and I kind of got slashed and it popped to Brayden Schenn. What’s important, it’s a goal.” It was Brayden Schenn’s first goal in four games. “Jake tried to feed it and snapped the puck to me," Brayden Schenn said. "It was good work in the corner by [Claude] Giroux and Jake. Good things happen when you go to the net.” That goal is why the Flyers won Saturday, 5-2, over the Islanders and why they got to .500 (10-10-2) for the first time this season after a 1-7 start. It’s the essence of why this club has turned it around.
