Flyers score 5 in 2nd, win 7-3
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jake Voracek was one of five Flyers to score in the second period, leading Philadelphia to a 7-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night.
Voracek, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Mark Streit and Brayden Schenn all scored in a 6 minute, 52-second span in the second to chase goalie Evgeni Nabokov and help the Flyers match a season high in goals. Michael Raffl also scored in the five-goal period.
Voracek boosted his NHL-best point total to 52. Claude Giroux, who turned 27, had two assists to give him 34 on the season and match his teammate for the league lead. Voracek and Giroux were named NHL All-Stars over the weekend.
Even with the All-Star duo enjoying sensational seasons, the Flyers entered the game 14th in the Eastern Conference.
Philadelphia's Rob Zepp won his second career game in place of injured Steve Mason. Mason is expected to miss two weeks because of a lower-body injury.
