PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Jaromir Jagr scored twice during a four-goal outburst in the third period Saturday that lifted the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-1 victory over Carolina.

Jagr's tally just 39 seconds into the final frame broke a 1-1 tie and ignited the offensive flurry for the Flyers.

Max Talbot made it 3-1 on a shorthanded goal 5:46 into the period and Claude Giroux followed with another just 2 minutes later.
