Video: Jakub Voracek plays keep away with the linesman

Jakub Voracek has quietly been one of the better players in the league the past few years, scoring at will while remaining a cornerstone of the Philadelphia Flyers.

A+ request by @ToddNags. that linesman is gonna get you...

By the numbers: Voracek scores game-winner in comeback win

  View image | gettyimages.com   It looked to be getting very ugly. Playing against another team at the bottom of the standings, the Philadelphia Flyers still couldn't find any offense. After a stretch of 27 minutes without a shot on goal, the Flyers were trailing 2-0 and only had three shots on goal halfway through the game. Maybe the Flyers had finally found rock bottom...

Judging Jakub: Looking at the advanced stats on Voracek's slow start

Jakub Voracek was, in my opinion, clearly the team MVP last season.  He hit a career high 81 points, and was all over the ice.  Therefore you probably don’t need me to use any advanced stats or graphs to tell that his stat line as of Thursday of 12 games played, 0 goals, 4 assists, and -6 is not very good.  (All stats referenced in this post will also be as of Thursday afternoon...

Voracek Fighting Not to Let Point Drought Bother Him

Flyers right winger Jakub Voracek has always been far more concerned with his team's record than his personal statistics.  Last season, when he led the race for the Art Ross Trophy (top scoring player in the NHL) for much of the season, he inevitably responded to questions about his own numbers by saying that he could not take satisfaction in individual stats when the team was...
