Flyers right winger Jake Voracek made his first-ever Olympic goal extra special on Friday.

Voracek's goal proved to be the game-winner as the Czech Republic rallied past Latvia, 4-2.

Former Flyer Jaromir Jagr had his second goal in as many Olympic games this year; he has nine goals and 22 points in 25 career Olympic games.

Jeff Carter, another ex-Flyer, had a natural hat trick to power Canada past Austria, 6-0.
