Free Press ★★★
★ Jakub Voracek, RW, Flyers: Set up two of Philly’s goals and was a threat just about every time he stepped on the ice. A quietly efficient game.
★★ Andrew Ladd, LW, Jets: Two goals for the Jets captain, who now has six this season. Both as a result of solid passes — the first from Blake Wheeler, the second from Evander Kane — and his quick hands.
★★★ Ilya Bryzgalov, G, Flyers: Jet fans serenaded him all night, but he was steady in kicking out 24 of 16 shots.

The win for the Flyers stopped a streak of four straight defeats on the road. Philly’s last victory away from home, before Tuesday night, came in a 7-1 decision over Florida on Jan. 26.
The Jets entered the game with the most points in the NHL from their defensive corps, but their six-man crew was held off the scoresheet Tuesday.
The Jets play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night, 6 p.m., CBC/TSN 1290
