The star of the Pittsburgh-Philly game Wednesday night has to be Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek, who scored a hat trick, including the game winner.
The Philadelphia Flyers-Pittsburgh Penguins matchup on Wednesday night will go down as one of the best of the season.

The game was so good it prompted Green Bay Packers QB great Aaron Rodgers to tweet: "Great hockey game just finished. Philly vs Pitts. Goals. Penalties. Fights. Sid. Late goal by Philly to win it."

The star on this night goes to Flyers right wing Jakub Voracek, who scored a hat trick, including the game winner during the 6-5 offensive thriller.

After scoring goals to end the second and begin the third, Voracek broke the hearts of the Penguins for good in the game's final 91 seconds. Pittsburgh's Brandon Sutter had tied the game 32 seconds earlier.

But Voracek directed a shot at goaltender Tomas Vokoun, who let the puck get under him despite hugging the far post.

This is how Voracek's three goals unfolded.
