News: With a pair of first-period assists Tuesday against the Islanders, Voracek surpassed the 80-point mark for the first time in his career.
Impact: What a season it's been for Voracek; too bad the rest of the Flyers haven't been able to play up to his level. He's been hot all year, so it's no surprise that he's on an excellent streak right now, with a dozen points over his last eight games.

News: Voracek tallied a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins. He also picked up a game-high 10 PIM.
Impact: Voracek has been picking up assists almost at will all year long, but the goal was his first in eight games dating back to March 15. His 57th assist moves the Czech into a tie for first in the league with Nicklas Backstrom, and he now sits just two points back of Sidney Crosby's 81 for the league lead in that category as well.

News: Voracek's collected his league-leading 56th assist of the season in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.
Impact: With eight points in his last five games, Voracek seems set on reclaiming the overall lead in points. He's got five games left to do it. But with the Flyers out of playoff contention, owners should be monitoring his status on a daily basis. It would be hard to imagine sitting Voracek, but coach Craig Berube may want to protect his star from injury in meaningless games down the stretch.
