WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — 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.
Vincent Lecavalier had two third-period goals for the Flyers, who rallied from a 3-1 deficit.
Matt Halischuk, Mathieu Perreault and Byfuglien scored for Winnipeg. 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.
