NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA - Jakub Voracek scored two goals, and Steve Mason made 35 saves to earn his first win of the season as the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Luke Schenn added goals for the Flyers, who began a four-game homestand with their third straight win on their own ice. They dropped their first three games in Philadelphia.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for the Oilers, who opened a five-game trip with their third straight loss.

The Oilers played without captain Andrew Ference and leading scorer Taylor Hall. Ference served the first of a three-game suspension for his illegal hit against Vancouver's Zack Kassian in Saturday's 3-2 home loss. Hall injured his knee and is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks.

Mason, 33-18-7 with a 2.50 goals-against average last season, was 0-4-1 with a 3.55 GAA before Tuesday.
