Sabres Beat Flyers In Overtime To Lead Series 3 Games To 2

The Sabres celebrate Tyler Ennis' game winning goal against the Philadelphia Flyers (Getty Images)

Tyler Ennis scored on a rebound in overtime to give the Sabres a 4-3 win over the Flyers in Philadelphia to give the Sabres a 3-2 lead in their best of seven first round series.  The Sabres had built a 3-0 lead in the first period only to see the Flyers rally with two goals in the second period and former Sabre Daniel Briere beating Ryan Miller to tie it 3-3 setting the stage for overtime.

Ennis’ game winner was his second goal of the game.  He opened the scoring early in the first period on a shot that eluded Flyers goaltender Brian Boucher.  Thomas Vanek made in 2-0 on another odd one that somehow got by Boucher, then Marc-Andre Gragnani scored his first career playoff goal on the power play to make it 3-0.  Boucher was then pulled and replaced with Michael Leighton.  Leighton responded by stopping every shot he faced until he gave up the game winner.

Ryan Miller at the other end stopped 36 of 39 shots to pick up the win. 

Game Six in the series is Sunday afternoon at 3 pm in Buffalo.
