Jakub Voracek scored twice in the third period to break open a tight game and lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 6-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. Wayne Simmonds, Claude Giroux, Max Talbot and Marc-Andre Bourdon also scored for Philadelphia while Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 43 shots as the Flyers pulled within a point of the Penguins for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The game served as a preview of what could be a heated first-round playoff matchup. The intensity bubbled over late during an extended third-period brawl that even had the coaches of both teams yelling across the glass at each other. Steve Sullivan scored twice for Pittsburgh and James Neal added his 39th of the season, but the Penguins couldn't hold an early two-goal lead. Marc-Andre Fleury made 20 saves yet remains one victory short of Tom Barrasso's franchise record for career wins.
