WASHINGTON — Jakub Voracek scored 38 seconds into overtime and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the NHL-leading Washington Capitals 4-3 on Wednesday night in the teams’ final game before the All-Star break.

Voracek’s second goal of the night snapped the Flyers’ three-game losing streak and the Capitals’ two-game winning streak. Brayden Schenn and Ryan White also scored for Philadelphia.

Despite 28 saves from Braden Holtby, the Caps lost at home for the first time since Nov. 19 against the Dallas Stars. Andre Burakovsky had two goals and Nicklas Backstrom scored his 16th of the season.

Philadelphia’s Michal Neuvirth stopped 27 of the 30 shots he faced to beat his former team for the first time.

LIGHTNING 1, MAPLE LEAFS 0: Andrei Vasilevskiy had 30 saves, Steven Stamkos scored his 21st goal and Tampa Bay beat visiting Toronto.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 28 shots for the Maple Leafs, who have lost 9 of 10 (1-7-2). Toronto has been outscored 31-11 during that stretch.

NOTES

CAPITALS: Mike Richards’ lawyer said the Washington Capitals center will not appear in Manitoba Court on Thursday because his trial on the charge of possession of a controlled substance has been adjourned to Feb. 25.
