Voracek scored an assist during a 5-1 loss during Game 3 on Sunday to Pittsburgh. The tally was Voracek's second straight game with an apple, but he also committed a four minute penalty which was a turning point in the contest. So far in the physical series, the Czech native has been logging immense minutes on the power play -- he's averaging 5:46 of time per game -- but Philadelphia's top unit hasn't had the same regular season success that ranked the team 10th in the NHL, but his assist from Game 2 was on the man advantage. Like the regular season, it also seems head coach Dave Hakstol is keen on leaving Voracek on the second line with Nolan Patrick and Oskar Lindblom, which will limit his five-on-five scoring. However, if Philadelphia's power play is able to start clicking, Voracek's steady presence on the right circle is usually a key facilitating piece.
Voracek registered two assists during Sunday's 4-3 overtime win against Boston. After missing the scoresheet in three consecutive games, this was a welcomed multi-point showing from Voracek. He's now up to 19 goals and 63 assists through 79 games and has a good shot of posting his first career point-per-game campaign. The veteran is never going to fill the net, but with 34 power-play points, 224 shots, 44 PIM and a plus-11 rating, Voracek has been a strong cross-category contributor this season.
Voracek scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 6-3 win over the Capitals on Sunday. This helper gives Voracek 60 assists on the season, a new personal best that also has him tied for the league lead. Additionally, though the Czech didn't notch a power-play point in this game, his 33 points with the extra man is tied for a career high as well (not to mention it's rather impressive).
Voracek scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 7-6 shootout loss to the Lightning. Voracek remains the NHL's best set-up man -- his 57 helpers lead the nearest competitor by two. And he's on pace to establish a new career mark in points overall. Voracek is 28, which seems a bit old in today's NHL. But he's playing like a boss. Use him well.
Voracek scored the game-winning goal in overtime and recorded two assists during Tuesday's 3-2 win against Montreal. The huge showing has Voracek up to 12 goals and 56 assists through 60 games and also well on his way to his first point-per-game showing of his career. Obviously, fantasy owners would love to see the Czech find the back of the net more frequently. However, with 30 power-play points, 175 shots, 42 PIM and a plus-7 rating, Voracek is mitigating his mediocre goal total by posting solid peripheral numbers.
