WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Rob Zepp made 25 saves in his NHL debut and Jakub Voracek scored 10 seconds into overtime, sending the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night.
Voracek and linemate Claude Giroux forced a Dustin Byfuglien turnover behind the Winnipeg net, and Voracek slid the puck through Ondrej Pavelec's pads for his second goal of the game.
Marc Streit and Vincent Lecavalier also scored for the Flyers, who rallied from a 3-1 deficit.
Matt Halischuk, Mathieu Perreault and Byfuglien had Winnipeg's goals. Pavelec made 19 saves.
The 33-year-old Zepp was promoted from Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League due to an injury to starter Steve Mason. The Flyers say he is the oldest goaltender to win his NHL debut since 1926.
Zepp, who spent the previous seven seasons in Germany, had a sprawling toe save on Mark Scheifele late in the second period.
Lecavalier tied the game with 3:14 remaining when he sent a high shot over Pavelec's blocker after a failed clearing attempt by Winnipeg defenseman Jay Harrison.
The Jets played for a second game without their top four defensemen, all of whom are out until at least January. Byfuglien, who was moved back to his natural position on the blue line after starting the season as a forward, led the team with almost 27 minutes of ice time.
Voracek opened the scoring just 46 seconds into the game when he one-timed a pass from Giroux on a 2-on-1 rush for his 13th goal of the season. Voracek leads the NHL with 44 points, two better than Tyler Seguin of Dallas.
