Flyers Beat The Sabres To Tie Their Playoff Series

The Philadelphia Flyers finally scored a power play goal in their series with the Buffalo Sabres and it propelled them to a 5 to 4 playoff win.  The Flyers had 10 chances with the man advantage so you figured it was just a matter of time before they would find the net.   That power play goal broke a 3-3 tie in the second period and a short time later former Sabre Daniel Briere had a puck deflect off his skate for another Flyers goal that turned out to be the game winner.

Thomas Vanek scored a pair of first period power play goals for the Sabres while Andrei Sekera and Cody McCormick had the other Buffalo goals.  Following a shutout in Game One, Ryan Miller was victimized for five goals on 34 shots in the loss.

The next two games are in Buffalo on Monday and Wednesday and the Sabres will need to play much more disciplined hockey than the two games they played in Philly.  They can’t keep making a path to the penalty box and expect to win the series.  But they did what they set out to do – win at least one game in Philadelphia.  It means the Sabres now have home ice advantage.
