PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Mark Streit tied it with 1:02 left in regulation and Jakub Voracek scored in overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 comeback victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
Chris VandeVelde and Roman Lyubimov also scored to help the Flyers run their regular-season home winning streak against the Red Wings to 12 games. The Red Wings last beat the Flyers in Philadelphia in the regular season on Jan. 25, 1997. Detroit did win the first two games of the 1997 Stanley Cup finals in Philadelphia on its way to sweeping the Flyers.
Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin and Andreas Athanasiou scored for Detroit, The Red Wings have lost three straight.
Voracek completed Philadelphia’s comeback by finishing a 2-on-1 with Claude Giroux 1:41 into the 3-on-3 overtime. The assist extended Giroux’s points streak to a career-high 10 games.
Streit tied it at 3 on a rebound after a scrum in front of the net. Goalie Petr Mrazek was taken out on the play when Frans Nielsen pushed Philadelphia’s Brayden Schenn into him. Detroit challenged the goal, claiming goalie interference, but it stood after a video review.
