Flyers Blank Senators, 5-0
NEW JERSEY 101.5
Jakub Voracek scored twice and Steve Mason made 24 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers shut out the Ottawa Senators 5-0 on Tuesday.
The Flyers have back-to-back wins and have scored nine goals in the two games, marking just the third time this season they have scored more than twice in a game.
Matt Read, Vincent Lecavalier and Brayden Schenn also scored for the Flyers (6-10-1), while Claude Giroux added two assists.
It was Mason’s first shutout of the season and the 20th of his career.
Craig Anderson stopped 26 of 31 shots in his first start in more than a week after suffering a neck injury in a loss to Dallas on Nov. 9. The Senators (7-7-4) were shutout for the first time this season and had a three-game winning streak snapped in the loss.
