Jakub Voracek recorded a hat trick in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, with the third score breaking a 5-5 tie with 1:31 remaining, giving the Philadelphia Flyers (8-9-1) a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins (11-6).

Wayne Simmonds scored twice for the Flyers, and Nicklas Grossman found the net, as well.  Philadelphia goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov earned his eighth win of the season.

Matt Niskanen, Evgeni Malkin, Tyler Kennedy, James Neal and Brandon Sutter scored for Pittsburgh.  Tomas Vokoun (3-3) stopped just 26 of 32 shots.

The Penguins, who are now just 3-4 at home, will host the Florida Panthers on Friday night.  96.3 KQW will join the radio broadcast of the game in progress, following the high school basketball playoff broadcast of the District 10 first-round game between Rocky Grove and VisionQuest.
