Voracek's 5-point night propels Flyers past Senators

Flyers 7, Senators 4: 10 things we learned from a welcome...

The Flyers took the lead on Voracek's second of the night as he showed great patience before beating Anderson five-hole. He later added an empty-net goal.

The Flyers (2-2), however, lost another one of their forwards to an injury.

Flyers center Nolan Patrick left in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.

If you're going to make a guarantee, proclaiming victory against the Ottawa Senators seems to be the way to go this season.

Tkachuk picked up his second of the night early in the second period as he carried the puck in and beat Pickard shortside, but less than two minutes later Couturier grabbed a rebound and backhanded it past Anderson to tie it 2-2. After yet another penalty in the game, Ottawa got within two after Lajoie scored his second goal on the evening.

Philadelphia finished the period with the lead as Thomas Chabot missed an opportunity to clear the puck down low and Laughton beat Anderson off a backhand.

Defenseman Robert Hagg skated into the slot and converted a pass from Michael Raffl, who was near the goal line, to put the Flyers ahead, 5-3, with 15:52 remaining in the third. Claude Giroux tallied his first goal of the year on, you guessed it, the power play and gave the team a three goal lead. Visa problems delayed him from joining the team, and he had just one full practice with the Flyers before getting Wednesday's start.

"A lot of times you're not in a flawless situation, and there's no question this isn't the ideal situation, but Pick is a guy who can mentally handle that", coach Dave Hakstol said before the game. Ivan Provorov took a tripping penalty a few minutes later and Brady Tkachuk recorded his first goal on the season giving Ottawa an early 1-0 lead. For Tkachuk, 19, the fourth overall pick in the 2018 draft and the son of former National Hockey League star, Keith, it was his first career goal.

Maxime Lajoie also had two goals and an assist for the Senators, who were playing the first of a five-game homestand. Later on in the period, Weise drew a hooking penalty and the Flyers tied the game after Jakub Voracek deflected a Shayne Gostisbehere shot passed Anderson. The Senators had left over power play time to start the second, but the Flyers killed it off. Ottawa, then, took a 2-1 lead after Tkachuk scored his second goal of the game. "We have to learn from those errors and the things we did wrong and get ready for Saturday". Chris Tierney had three assists for Ottawa.

Just prior to training camp, Ottawa traded its best player, two-time Norris trophy victor Erik Karlsson, to the San Jose Sharks - the team that whipped the Flyers 8-2 on home ice just 24 hours earlier.

After a blowout loss and the hands of the San Jose Sharks, the Philadelphia Flyers came into tonight's game wanting to put that game behind them.

Lyon will battle for playing time with fellow netminders Anthony Stolarz and Carter Hart.
