Voracek picked up two power-play assists in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs. Voracek has seven of his 11 points in his last five games. You need to have him active, but pay attention to his usage. The Flyers separated him and Claude Giroux at even strength, and while that won't be permanent, it could affect Voracek's value short term.
Voracek scored and collected an assist in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders. Voracek opened the scoring and then picked up a secondary assist on Claude Giroux's third-period goal, giving the forward two or more points in back-to-back contests. Voracek recorded three points in the Flyers' last game, a 7-4 win over the Blue Jackets, and now has nine points in 10 games.
Voracek scored a goal and two assists, one of them on the power play, in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Blue Jackets. The 30-year-old winger hasn't played for Columbus since being traded to Philly after the 2010-11 campaign, but the fire to prove the organization wrong apparently still burns bright. Voracek failed to hit the scoresheet through the first four games of this season, but he's flipped the switch since, collecting three goals and seven points in the last five contests.
Voracek scored a pair of power-play goals on seven shots and added an assist Wednesday in a 6-3 loss to Edmonton. It was a much-needed breakout game for Voracek, who had gone without a point in each of the Flyers' first four games of the season prior to Wednesday. The seven shots on goal were also a good sign, considering Voracek had been held to a grand total of one in his previous two games. The 30-year-old has been a reliable 20-goal man in six of the last seven years so the early season skid shouldn't cause any panic.
Voracek has zero points with a minus-1 rating and seven shots on net in the first three games of the season. The Flyers added Kevin Hayes to their top line this season with Claude Giroux and Voracek, and the group has been slow to develop chemistry. Giroux and Hayes are also off to slow starts with one point each. Voracek has reached 20 goals and 60 points in three straight seasons; there's nothing from the first three games -- other than a sluggish start -- to suggest that streak is in serious jeopardy.
