Jakub Voracek scored 1:13 in extra time to score an unsupported goal for the visiting Philadelphia Flyers, who squandered an early two-goal lead before beating Rangers 5-4 on Monday.
Voracek stepped in front of Artemi Panarin and got a clearing pass from Rangers goalkeeper Keith Kinkaid. The right winger raced in alone, screeching in the crease, forcing Kinkaid to spread to the right before Voracek stuck the puck into the wide-open net.
James van Riemsdyk, Ivan Provorov, Joel Farabee and Claude Giroux scored also goals for the Flyers, who won for the second time in six games (2-4-0). Voracek and Sean Couturier each had two templates, while Provorov, Giroux and Farabee each had one. Philadelphia goalkeeper Carter Hart made 20 saves.
Panarin, Colin Blackwell, Julien Gauthier and Kevin Rooney scored goals for the Rangers, who lost four out of five (1-3-1). Panarin added two assists and Kinkaid saved 25 saves.
The Flyers took the lead early by scoring two goals in 78 seconds at the start of the first half. Van Riemsdyk was able to complete a strange onslaught by taking a pass from Farabee and shuffling from forehand to backhand before beating Kinkaid at 3:47.
Couturier won a faceoff with Mika Zibanejad deep in the Rangers zone, before he adjusted the screen that led to the Flyers’ second gate. The puck hit Provorov, whose shot sailed past a jumping couturier into the other side of the net beyond Kinkaid.
The Rangers took the lead by scoring three unanswered goals in a distance of 7:04 in the second half . Panarin cut the gap in half at 8:12 am when he took a pass from Tarmo Reunanen in one movement, fired a shot from the faceoff circle, and fell onto the ice as the puck sailed into the net.
Panarin set up the game-winning goal by taking a pass over the zone to Brendan Smith, racing over the ice and threading the puck past defender Philippe Myers and towards Blackwell, who shot a shot past a sprawling hart at 10:52. The Rangers took the lead at 4:44 when Gauthier took a pass from Filip Chytil, raced past Shayne Gostisbehere and scored a goal after switching from his forehand to his backhand.
The Flyers tied the score 3:20 later and nine seconds in a power game generated when Gauthier was whistled for high sticking. Giroux went behind the net to Farabee, whose shot went under Kinkaid’s stick arm.
A long battle for the puck near the boards deep in the Flyers zone led to Rooney’s goal from 2:56 to the third from close range . Philadelphia combined it with another power play goal at 5:33 when Giroux, stationed next to Kinkaid, diverted a shot from Voracek.
