Tuukka Rask Makes Great Save On Jakub Voracek After Bruins Turnover (Video)

Tuukka Rask made 24 saves in a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon, and none of them were better than his stop on Jakub Voracek in the second period. After Bruins defenseman Torey Krug turned the puck over to Voracek in his own zone, the Flyers winger skated toward Rask all by himself, but the Boston goaltender made a spectacular right-pad save. Check it...

Miller's flawless performance against Flyers is just what he -- and the Blues -- needed

ST. LOUIS -- Uh-oh. That's what St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said he was thinking late in overtime on Tuesday when Flyers forward Jakub Voracek corralled a pass in front and was all alone against Ryan Miller with a chance to net the game-winner. Uh-oh. "I think we all were," Shattenkirk admitted. But then Miller stretched every bit of his scrawny 6...

Video- Flyers’ Not Happy With No-Goal Call Late In 2-1 Loss To The Devils

from Sam Donnellon of the Philadelphia Daily News, The NHL disallowed a goal that it clearly could see went in in a different manner than the referee's perception because, well, rules are rules.

It should not have become a nail-biter. Not with a 4-0 lead and everything going so well and the Flyers having played two of their best opening 40 minutes all season, allowing just eight shots. But it happened. Luckily, their top line bailed them out and Steve Downie gave them a much-needed empt-netter to secure the Flyers’ wild 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday...

For Jakub Voracek, Sochi was a 'great experience'

Jakub Voracek was visibly exhausted. His flight back from Sochi on Thursday was 11 hours long -- and that doesn’t count the time it took him to drive home from Newark, N.J. But for the 24-year-old first-time Olympian, representing the Czech Republic was entirely worth it. “It was a great experience,” Voracek said Friday at a stop by Skate Zone. “I think it was a great setup...

Nothing is more frustrating than to see a team lose a game it had won. Or blow a 2-goal lead. And in the process, partially toss aside a very good effort from its goalie. It happened again to the Flyers on Monday in Uniondale, NY with a 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders. Loss aside, Jakub Voracek injured his left hand on a slashing from Cal Clutterbuck.
