Flyers' Jakub Voracek loses it on Leafs' Peter Holland
Both teams penalized for scrap
The Flyers' Jakub Voracek was a little upset Thursday.
It all started with Holland breaking into the Flyers' zone, heading for the net, when he was sandwiched by Philadelphia's Brayden Schenn and Mark Streit. Holland went down into Mason and reacted by giving the goalie a little whack after the whistle.
Then, Hurricane Voracek landed squarely and instantly on Holland's back.

In the ensuing madness, Voracek grabbed onto Holland, pulling him forcefully to the ice and keeping up the attack until linesmen David Brisebois and Lonnie Cameron tackled the 25-year-old.
Voracek's passion may have had something to do with it being Mason's first time back in net after knee surgery. Mason wasn't even supposed to play, but was put in after Rob Zepp was pulled in the second.
Philadelphia was fired up, scoring again three minutes later to bring the Flyers to within a goal. Both power-play goals had Giroux and Streit earn points as the Flyers almost came back after Toronto led for most of the game. Bernier finished with 47 saves.
A small slash by Holland almost led to the Leafs losing another game, but they held on 3-2.
