Sports Talk with Brodes: Jake Voracek Scores Overtime Winner in St. Louis!
The Philadelphia Flyers beat the St. Louis Blues in overtime thanks to Jakub Voracek who finds the twine! What a gutsy performance by this team to go on the road and beat one of the best teams in hockey as they were on a big win streak in their own building. The Flyers had a 3-1 lead in the third period after Travis Konecny scored a powerplay goal once James Van Riemsdyk tipped a beautiful pass backdoor. From there though, the Blues turned it on as Ryan O'Reilly and Alexander Steen both scored to tie the game up.They had to a kill a 5 on 3 penalty kill with Michael Raffl and Kevin Hayes both in the box and a Too Many Men on the ice penalty in that third period which was not an easy task. The penalty kill was outstanding. Brian Elliott was in between the pipes and will continue to be since the news of Carter Hart's injury was released. He will be out for a few weeks. Ivan Provorov logged over 27 minutes and he was stellar. This team is playing fantastic hockey against great teams over the last four games they are 3-1. This is against the Capitals, Bruins, Lightning, and Blues.
